It's all about American Beef....No more Scott...

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Scott Bicycles announced it will stop sponsorship of the Spanish ProTour Team, Scott-American Beef for the 2009 season. The team was linked to doping issues when its star rider, Riccardo Riccò, tested positive for EPO-CERA in the Tour de France. Scott took over title sponsorship after the events and the departure of former head sponsor, Saunier Duval.

"Scott has been a partner with [Team Manager] Mauro Gianetti's team since the beginning in 2004. In all the past years, the team celebrated some remarkable victories. We would like to thank the team for the cooperation in the past years and we wish the team and new sponsors all the best for the future," stated Pascal Doctor, VP Scott Sports SA, in a press release.

Further information will be available in Cyclingnews' next news edition.

The Freds don't care what whoever is riding next year. They are too freaking busy adjusting their mirrors.
