    All the long time sponsors are pulling out. I'm sure Riis's admission about doping didn't help the situation. It sucks, there will be that much less money floating around now

    Sponsors come and go, take a look back at the teams around 6 years ago, there are a lot that aren't around. Sponsoring a team is all about marketing, when you don't feel you need the marketing anymore you stop the sponsorship. Some stick around long than other, but very few last a really long time.

    It still seems (and it could just be me) that more money is leaving than new money coming in.
