Dan Osipow has resigned from his post as managing director of Tailwind Sports, the company that co-manages the Discovery Channel team. Tailwind has managed the team in all of its previous incarnations, and Osipow has been a part of the company since its inception in the early 1990's. Osipow said he had, "had an incredible experience working for Tailwind Sports over the years and am very proud to have contributed even in the smallest way to the success and growth of this team." Osipow paid tribute to the achievements of the team, which include wins at all three grand tours, particularly Lance Armstrong's seven Tour de France victories between 1999-2005.
Osipow has joined ISP Sports and will work as an associate general manager of Cal Sports Properties, focusing mainly on the sponsorship and marketing of the University of Cal Berkeley's football and basketball programmes.
