Pay up, b!tches!

This is awesome.

"The sponsors are still there, but much lighter, except for Trek, Nike and KazMunaiGaz, who paid," team spokesman Philippe Maertens told Cyclingnews.

The team has experienced difficulties with payments from its sponsors, and riders and staff are behind in receiving payments. The UCI threatened to suspend the team if payments are not made by May 31.

Riders get jerked around quite a bit, so it's nice to see them get together for a bit of civilized protest.
