Article in the New York Times today about Sponsors pulling out of bicycle racing. Essentially the article says that sponsors are skiddish due to the drug issue, most notably Landis' ongoing troubles, as well as the drop in television coverage world wide, and a drop in attendence. The article gives an example of a european one day race (forget which one) with a 77% drop in attendence this year.
Also the Zurich championship was apparently hit hard because Landis was on a Swiss Team. This is a race that had been run for almost 100 years, including through WW II.
If Professional cycling doesn't clean up the circus, things could be dark for awhile.
