VeloNews rewrites the three month surgery progress update by Dr. Brent Kay that appeared on floydlandis.com.
The VeloNews Saturday Mailbag contains an interesting theory which might just explain everything:
Early last year I read an article in which Floyd and Allen Lim arranged a ride during which they espoused the benefits of riding with a watt meter. The ride culminated at an In-And-Out Burger, which stuck in my mind as it reminded me of LeMond (and because I'm a clyde').
Now, I'm no nutritionist, and I've only been to an In-And-Out Burger once (and loved it), but I'd think that a fast food burger would contain all kinds of growth hormones, steroids, stimulants and other wacky stuff cattle are injected with these. Any chance one could ingest this stuff and have it show up as synthetic testosterone at a highly inopportune moment? Especially after a couple Amstels?
Anybody else getting hungry?

Cyclingpost rehashes yesterday's annoucement of the AFLD hearing to be held Feb. 8th in Paris. The same (or similar) piece can be found in The Chronical Herald as well as the Sunday Telegraph.
Neil@Road tell us why it was a good thing that Floyd (along with others) rode with him last year.
Rant's post yesterday about the AFLP summons elicits interesting comments.
MishmashBookshop (UK) runs year end Obituary for Pro Tour Cycling, or at least his interest.
Sportsfilter notes that Floyd makes Dick (Pound) a little testy. I'm sure the feeling is mutual.
