Riis Has New Team Name – Team Saxo-Tinkoff

With immediate effect, Riis Cycling and its two Co-Title sponsors, Saxo Bank and Tinkoff Bank, have agreed to change the name of the cycling team to “Team Saxo-Tinkoff.”

Since Russian company Tinkoff Bank came on board prior to the Tour de France 2012, the name of the team had been Team Saxo Bank-Tinkoff Bank. Going forward the new name will be Team Saxo-Tinkoff.
