The Fassa Bortolo team has attempted to cool speculation on its fate after 2005 by announcing that it will let the world know what's happening after May 31. Recent reports have indicated that the team's sponsorship might not continue into 2006, and rumours have already begun about the destination of Alessandro Petacchi should the team stop.

According to a statement from the team, negotiations are underway about its future, and after a meeting during yesterday's Giro rest day the sponsors, management and riders agreed that no announcement would be made until May 31.
