The Unibet.com riders at the start in the Tour of Belgium started with green bracelets around their wrist to support the Cleansports action.
"In this way we want to fight against the bad image cycling is facing recently with all the doping stories. So as a team we want to support the initiative from Willy Delabastita. The green bracelets are sold through the website Cleansports.com and hopefully it's becoming all the rage," team manager Koen Terryn said at the start in Oostende.
