Predictor-Lotto to Silence

Team Predictor-Lotto is changing its name again for the 2008 season, as sponsor Omega Pharma wants to publicize a different product. The new team name will be Silence-Lotto, according to, and the jerseys will be red as opposed to this year's salmon-pink strip of the company's pregnancy test brand. Silence is an anti-snoring medicine.

Omega has been a team sponsor since 2003, first dubbing the team with the name of its vitamin supplement line Davitamon before changing last season to Predictor. It is not known how long the name will remain. The team's ProTour license expires the end of 2008, as does the Lotto sponsorship contract.
