Belgian Continental Professional team MrBookmaker.com-Sportstech will be known next year as Unibet.com, after MrBookmaker was bought by the Swedish internet betting firm Unibet. Spokesman Koen Terryn confirmed that the cycling team will keep going, at least until the end of next season. "At the moment, we are discussing when we want to make the step to the ProTour: in 2006 or in 2007?" said Terryn. "One thing is certain, the team will have bigger ambitions from now on and wants to go further in 2006 in the grass-green colours of Unibet. At the start of September, it will be decided whether the team will go alone or with a co-sponsor. This week we'll decide whether the riders have to start learning Swedish or not," Terryn joked.
