My how the mighty have fallen…
Lance Armstrong Dropped By Six More Sponsors
Lance Armstrong is set to lose at least $50million in sponsorship deals over the next five years after a string of companies followed Nike’s decision to ditch the disgraced cyclist.
Bike sponsor Trek Bicycles and helmet sponsor Giro are among the glut of companies who have distanced themselves from the cyclist.
Technology retailer Radioshack has also reportedly decided to have nothing more to do with the 41-year-old as has food maker Honey Stringer and health club franchise 24HR Fitness.
Energy drink manufacturer FRS said Armstrong had been ‘on its board for several years but had resigned.’
Just two hours after Nike said it was terminating its contracting with the star yesterday Anheuser-Busch followed suit.
With his career and reputation in tatters the athlete seemingly no longer offers sponsors the image or publicity they desire from a sportstar.
There is only one company that is down to thug it out with Lance until they know what’s what…
Sunglasses manufacturer Oakley said it was withholding judgment until the International Cycling Union decides whether to challenge the USADA’s findings.
That’s nice of them, but it probably won’t be long before they drop Lance cheatin’ azz too.
$50 Million is a LOT of money to lose behind some performance enhancing drugs, was it worth it Lance??
