Several riders including Belgian Bart Voskamp, all under contract of Continental team Skil Moser in 2005, have not received their salary for four months, ANP reported. Voskamp has put an end to his career after this season, but is now involved in legal action against his former employee, team manager Bert van der Tuuk, who in turn claims that he has not received a part of the sponsorship funds from Skil.
"This part will now be paid to everybody's satisfaction," said Skil marketing manager Robert de Rooij. "But I want to make it clear that we are not satisfied with the management of the team and its communication. In our opinion, we have already fulfilled our commitments." Skil will continue to support cycling as co-sponsor of Dutch Professional Continental team Shimano next season.
