Cycling Team Disbands

More news from the world of cycling. Phonak, the team that had employed Floyd Landis has decided this week to shut down its operations. The American's recent victory in the Tour de France is in doubt, following his positive results for testoterone.

Landis' former Swiss-based employer cited "continuing doping issues" and an inability to sell the team for the decision to disband. The announcement surprises WBUR's sports commentator Bill Littlefield.
