    Fans of American cyclist Levi Leipheimer are boycotting the Swiss company
    Assos. Company officials announced to investors today that their first
    quarter 2008 earnings would fall well below analysts' expectations as a
    result. "Stockpiles of XL, XLG and TIR sized goods are building and if they
    continue at this pace will bring tremendous pressure to our balance sheet,"
    an unnamed Assos official said. "This is serious."
    "Leipheimer's fans are an enthusiastic, if uninformed, lot," said industry
    analyst Handel Barr. "They are upset Levi won't be allowed to start this
    year's Tour de France, but they seem to have confused Assos with the Amaury
    Sports Organisation (ASO) who promote Le Tour. I can only speculate this is
    because Assos and ASO both use the letters A, S, O exclusively in their
    names, are connected to cycling in some fashion and are European."

    News of the crisis has prompted the Swiss government to try and intercede on
    Assos' behalf.

    "We're having trouble even starting talks. We tried to contact the boycott
    leaders through the 'Let Levi Ride' website, but the people there were
    unfamiliar with the boycott. They did offer us a 'pro deal' on some
    Bontrager components. Unfortunately, the savings doesn't amount to more
    than a pair of Fl.13 S5 bid shorts," said government spokesman Willelmus de
    Fruentia. "As it stands", he continued,"the war between the ASO and the UCI
    will be the only European war that hasn't made Switzerland money. That
    would be embarrassing to have happen on our watch, no pun intended".

    Awsome Information the Assos must be in a world of Huuhrrt!


    Not sure but did anyone besides me catch dudes act on Versus the last day of the TOC? Something along the lines of "ASTANA is the best stage racing team I TEH WHOLE WIDES world and DA intardnet". Of course I added some things to his quote but what a jackass and furthermore what a staged interview by Bob Roll and Versus!

    I think the basic knock against Leipheimer is that he is boring. Bahati even had an entry in his blog alleging the same thing.
