Call me stupid, but I had no idea that countries assembled multiple teams to compete in Le Tour de France. I just always thought that Lance Armstrong and the U.S. Postal Service Team was the only team that raced for the United States! But with the exit of the USPS as a sponsor, that gave plenty of brands the opportunity to jump onto the international stage. I don’t know how long they have been sponsors, but BMC Racing Team, HTC Highroad, Team Garmin and Team RadioShack all claim to be based in the United States. To be able to put your brand name on the world-famous yellow jersey must feel great!
Team Garmin, they are the current leaders
