Intersports/Vanguard Team Update
We have been waiting for an update on the Intersports team for quite some time, but it looks like things are not going too well. The team has lost their manager Kathleen Miller before the season even started, and still has not signed a contract with their sponsors at last report. Apparently French former world champion Catherine Marsal signed with them and is now looking for a new ride. Some team members are still trying to pull something together, but nothing has been signed at this time. Canada may end up with no women's road teams at this rate...
