A Sad Day For Cycling

This past Friday, the best cycling team in the world, the Discovery Channel Team, called it quits.

This is very sad for cycling and, especially for American cycling. The team leaders, including Lance Armstrong, explained that with all the uncertainty surrounding the sport, they could not in good concience bring in a new sponsor (Discovery had decided not to renew its sponsoship) for $15MM a year. Too many things, they explained, were out of their control.

Someone better get on top of this sport and bring it under control. It's a very bad sign when the best team in the world just calls it a day.

    I agree. Shocking.

    I think its also because of all the doping accusations going on, that makes the corporate sponsors nervous.
