At this point just about anyone who has even a little bit of interest in cycling is well aware of the turmoil that Floyd Landis has created with his announcement of his doping, and his finger pointing at others. Landis claims that he needed to “clear his conscious”, but it seems much more like he is seeking revenge against the American cyclisst he believes has taken his glory from him.
What follows below is the statement from the Bahati Foundation announcing that Floyd Landis is no longer on the team, and the departure of OUCH Medical Center as a sponsor.
Newport Beach, CA May 27, 2010 – The Bahati Foundation Pro Cycling Team will be moving forward without the continued support of OUCH Medical Center due to the recent turbulent media environment. We are
extremely thankful to Dr. Brent Kay for his generous support and respect his decision to minimize involvement in the cycling world at this time.
Also, due to the media intensive environment, the team and Floyd Landis have decided to amicably part ways. We support his courage to come forward in an effort to facilitate a drug free and fair sport.
The team is working to update sponsorship and continue supporting the mission of the Bahati Foundation. The Foundation supports youth in inner-city through the sport of cycling and GIVEBACK programs.
Proud supporters of the Bahati Foundation Pro Cycling Team include:
The Bahati Foundation;
Louis Garneau (clothing, helmets and shoes);
PRO (wheels, stems and handlebars);
RAHA SPORTS (Sports Marketing);
