4 US Cyclists Opt Out of Olympic Consideration
By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Four top U.S. cyclists — all former teammates of Lance Armstrong — removed their names from consideration for spots on the Olympic team.

Levi Leipheimer, George Hincapie, Christian Vande Velde and David Zabriskie asked that they be taken out of the running for places on the road cycling team for next month's London Games.

USA Cycling announced its five-man team Friday.

The national governing body released a statement Saturday in which it identified the four riders but refused to speculate on the reasons for their requests. The governing body said it issued its statement because of numerous requests for comment.

All four riders spent time on the U.S. Postal team with Armstrong. The seven-time Tour de France champion is facing fresh allegations of doping by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency.

Probably more to do with their schedule than anything.

Horner road with Lance. Wonder why he isn't on that list?
