Several of Lance Armstrong's once faithful and eager sponsors began pedaling away Wednesday, after months of loyally sticking by the embattled cyclist.
David Cope, a sports marketing consultant who has worked for all seven professional teams in the Baltimore-Washington area, said Mr. Armstrong could make a good investment for new companies that want to sponsor him because they could get him for about 50 cents on the dollar or less.
He pointed out that Mr. Armstrong has been linked to drug scandals for years, so if he was a valued endorser then, he could be a valued endorser again.
