    Notes

    • In the early 1990s, the cash sponsorship from Metropolis was always less than agreed upon (WEL personal recollection)

    Year-by Year Notes

    • 1973 Based on a photograph of a jersey provided by Butler, Mike
    • 1974 Presumably Georgetown Cycle Sport. Year-end accounting from Al Dubbe in ArchiveNCOFiles does not list any sponsor income, however.
    • 1975 Presumably Georgetown Cycle Sport. Year-end accounting from Stevens, Peter in ArchiveNCOFiles does not list any sponsor income, however.
    • 1982 Last year of Georgetown Cycle Sport Sponsorship
    • 1983 First year of Metropolis Sponsorship
    • 1985 Metropolis provided cash sponsorship. Mel Pinto Imports provided Cortina equipment valued at $5000 Source ArchiveButlerFiles Numbers taken from USCF sponsorship agreements. Actual value may be different
    • 1986 Metropolis provided cash sponsorship. Mel Pinto Imports provided Cortina equipment valued at $5135.75, consisting mostly of 283 Cortina tubular tires Source ArchiveButlerFiles Numbers taken from USCF sponsorship agreements. Actual value may be different
    • 1987 Metropolis provided cash sponsorship. Mel Pinto Imports provided Cortina equipment of unknown value. Numbers taken from USCF sponsorship agreements. Actual value may be different 
    • 1988 Metropolis provided cash sponsorship. Mel Pinto Imports through Bicycle Pro Shop provided Cortina equipment. Numbers taken from USCF sponsorship agreements. Actual value may be different
    • 1989 Metropolis and Mel Pinto (through Bicycle Pro Shop) were co-sponsors. The club jersey even had Metropolis on the back and Bicycle Pro Shop on the front. The cash sponsorship came from Metropolis. Bicycle Pro shop provided equipment. Numbers taken from USCF sponsorship agreements. Actual value may be different
    • 1990 The secondary sponsorship consisted of some number of Reynolds 531 tubesets, which John Hollands, a custom frame builder based in Reiseterown, Md, built into frames. Numbers taken from USCF sponsorship agreements. Actual value may be different.
    • 1991
    • 1999 Last year of Metropolis sponsorship. Co-owner Barry Rivken died of pancreatic cancer in October '99, and Metropolis declared bankruptcy in the Fall of '99 as well.  (Velo Voice, Jan 2000). Mavic sponsorship was run as a lottery (VV Feb 99)
    • 2001
