Nissan ending cycling team sponsorship

Nissan executives have moved to end their sponsorship of the top-level RadioShack cycling team after less than a year as full co-sponsor. The company will honor its contract through the end of next year but won't provide its cars to the team or have its name on jerseys. Officials aren't providing details on why the company is leaving, but Velonews notes the team has made some headlines for the wrong reasons in recent months.
