Does that mean that BMC dropped their Bont sponsorship?

Since a few years, teams don’t accept shoe sponsorships and all riders are sponosored individually. This is the third year already that Tejay is riding the PI’s. Gilbert is riding Vittoria, Greg Van Avermaet is riding S-Works…

Fun fact: The shoes use asymmetrical coloring because Tejay van Garderen doesn’t know his left from his right.
