Landis losing vans for RAAM

This was a sad story in yesterday's AZ Republic. Hope things work out for them.

Too funny. Any money National car rental was trying to make they just lost ten fold from the bad publicity they are now going to get from that article and the fact that it is being posted on international cycling forums. I am sure someone will step up and give these guys a couple of vans and I hope whoever made the decision at National has a hard time removing their shoe from their a$$.

Hmm I guess I mis read the article. it says "...Landis team members did not know that the national rental car agency that had promised to supply the group with two 15-passenger vans..." I read that as the National rental agency, that had promised to supply the group with two 15-passenger vans,

If you go to the team's website, it lists "National Alamo Car Rental" as a corporate sponsor
