[i wanted to say something smart ass about this, but i will let the news speak for itself, and it does a fine job]

Rabobank's general director Theo de Rooy has decided, in consultation with the squad, to step down. A team statement said, "After the disappointments of the most recent Tour de France, De Rooy wishes to have the time and rest to consider the future. Rabobank understands and respects this decision."

"This parting is very hard for me, very very hard," he said. "The team is my life and my love. But I didn't see any other choice."

The team also named an investigative panel to look into events surrounding this year's Tour and Rasmussen's firing in particular.
