Jacobs gets a feature in the Mercury News.
CyclingNews feature on the Landis evidence by Laura Weislo. She pretty much accepts all criticism of the Landis arguments, including Christiane Ayotte's assertions that only one metabolite is necessary for a CIR positive. DPF post on the article observes only .31% of TE screen positives end up confirmed, and that "about 70% of athletes initially screened at 10:1 would subsequently be shown to have a T/E of less than four on the confirmation test shows how much variability between screening and confirmation tests typically occurs."
Mr. Pound will get replaced, candidates emerge according to the Grauniad.

Discussed at DPF.

Spokesman podcast discusses Landis, talks with Vaughn of Daily Peloton [thanks Carlton]. Haven't heard myself yet. Discussed at ScienceFiction Twin, who points us to a clip of Carlton saying, "testosterone does not make you go downhill faster." I'm not sure I buy that -- it one believes the psychological effect theory, you can imagine a testo-jacked dude descending like a madman. The phrase, "balls ten, brains zero" seems to catch the drift of that theory.
