Are you sure you are not talking about Gravity Group, the team of 2006-2007 with Filip Polc, that ran Turners, FSA parts and sported red gear, before he got on Yeti? I'm 99% sure he wasn't on Global.

It just occurred to me: what happens to Mille Johnset? She was supported by the Athertons and doing pretty neat last season. I believe she will be in the Women Elite this year, but on what team? Does anyone have a clue?
