Word that RadioShack will end its cycling sponsorship is disappointing, but not unexpected (Steven Woo)

Bicycling Magazine reports that RadioShack, weary of certain recent scandals, is dropping bicycle-racing involvement.

After the last 12 months, you can’t really blame RadioShack for pulling the plug on its team sponsorship. According to a report in l’Equipe, the Texas-based electronics retailer will end its sponsorship at close of the 2013 season, citing poor corporate performance, repetitive bad news for the sport and a shift in strategic focus to Asia.

Footbiking sport is a lot more wholesome.
