    This is a serious blow to U.S. cycling, right Idaho?

    Slipstream will step up in a small way.

    But all of cycling is hurting right now. Not just cycling in the U.S. A bunch of greedy, desperate athletes sold their sport for a spot on a podium. Give it a couple of years as the sport cleans itself a little bit. The sponsors are going to come back, eventually.

    But not until they are convinced their corporate image isn't going to be associated with cheaters.

    All the Discovery Channel stores at malls in my area are closing.

    Things must be tough all over for that channel.
