    Pegasus won't fly at all

    It appears Pegasus, after having had its wings clipped twice, has finally had them removed altogether:

    The article shows just how tough it is to get sponsors and support for a tainted sport - too bad, they had some good talent on that team.

    That's just sad.

    The big names get out to other teams, but the rest...a year down the drain!

    They might find spots on minor Conti teams if they are lucky...that really sucks.

    Pretty sad.

    I hope they will reacquire a license next year.
    I guess they can still race to any continental events.

    shows that you need to get behind a team. If GreenEdge worked with Pegusus then Australia would have a Pro team now. You cant expect to get ahead when two camps work against each other - Australia is not big enough!

    I guess it settles it - horses can't fly, even if they have wings.
