The Rothauas Brauerei (Brewery), the name sponsor of the Rothaus Regio Tour and other races in southwestern Germany, will stop sponsoring professional-level cycling. "Professional cycling is worthless to sponsors right now," Rothaus director Thomas Schäuble told the dpa press agency.

Rothaus also supported the GP Triberg-Schwarzwald and the Sparkassen-Cup in Schwenningen.

"There is just no improvement in sight," Schauble said. "The will to clean things up just isn't there."
