This article originally published on BikeRadar
Taiwanese manufacturers Giant will provide WorldTour team Argos-Shimano with bikes in 2014, claims a report in Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf.
Giant currently supply the Belkin squad, who have ridden the company's bikes since 2009, when the team were sponsored by Rabobank. Belkin will switch to Bianchi bikes next season, claims the story. Bianchi's current team is Vacansoleil-DCM, who will not have a main sponsor in 2014.
BikeRadar sought confirmation from Argos-Shimano about the sponsorship changes. American brand Felt currently sponsor Argos-Shimano, so the move might mean their presence in the professional peloton is coming to an end.
However both Belkin and Argos-Shimano told BikeRadar there was "no news" on the matter of bike sponsorship.
