I just read in Cycling News the details on this have not been released, but Lemond did have disagreements with Wordin. Lemond's company is also wanting to start its own venture in a cycling team w/o a partner.

More to the point, Lemond are being sued by Fuji for getting Mercury to drop Fuji bikes despite a contract. I believe the legal term in the US is torturous interference - getting someone (Mercuty-Viatel) to sign a contract with you (Lemond Bikes), knowing that they already have a contract with someone else (Fuji)

Not suprised that they're getting out. Also, isn't Viatel in financial difficulty?
