    U.S. consumer electronics group Belkin will sponsor the Blanco cycling team until 2015, rescuing the Tour de France entrant after its previous backer pulled out because of the sport's problems with doping.
    The announcement on Monday is a timely boost for professional cycling ahead of the start of the Tour on June 29 as it tries to rebuild commercially following the Lance Armstrong scandal.
    The Blanco team, which formerly raced as Rabobank, has been seeking a new title sponsor since the Dutch financial group announced its plans to withdraw last October, frustrated by cycling's damaging series of doping scandals.
    The team will race under the Belkin name and in its new black, white and green colours when the Tour gets under way in Corsica on Saturday.

    They're already on show in the Tour de France and they look pretty good.
