NY Times/Juliet Macur have a piece describing the ACE profile testing program in place at Slipstream (powered by Chipotle).
AFP picks up Slipstream, noting Landis/Puerto as motivation.
The Australian notes the IOC's rebuke of Pound last week, without directly linking Pound's recent comments on Landis to the Ethics committee action.
The Cyclingnews briefly notes the publication of "Positively False" due out in June.
The Denver Post along with the Indianapolis Star (which says FL will be pushing books instead of pedals in June) and the Philadelphia Inquirer reprint the AP story on the publication of "Postitively False".
Lancaster Papers talk to Arlene Landis about the book, picked up by Biking Bis. 1/3 childhood/teen/early pro; 1/3 Tour last year; last third, The Case through the hearing, all to be done by Mid June for June 26 publication.
Sportingo posts an analysis of FL's non-submission of B samples and USADA's motivations for wanting them.
Vapours uses the concept of the artists' model and applies it societally describing Floyd Landis as an example of the "charlatan". Maybe this could be applied in said model as "snark of the day"?
Friends of Fast Freddy post that FL's time trial helmet is available without the moustache and "mullet"? Hmmm Fast Freddy needs to look into what a mullet really is.
Cycling Through Crime thinks that by refusing to submit B samples to USADA, FL is digging a hole he may not be able to get out of.
BRILF thinks pro cycling should go NASCAR, and uses CycleOps/Landis Power Camp as an example of synergy (my word, not his!).
Steephill.TV hosts a collection of user pix and video from the 2006 ToC, called "The Grassy Knoll" project. Much goodness to be seen.
Rant talks about the Slipstream/ACE program, somewhat skeptically, because he doesn't see how it would have helped Landis in his case.
We note that Rant doesn't seem to have mentioned Slipstream's not-quite-title sponsor, "Powered by Chipotle", the burrito place, and the NYT did just once, while using "Slipstream" all over the place. Pony up Chipotle, this is the treatment you get in the second tier. And yes, their Burritos are just swell, I go to the one at Crow Canyon and Danville Blvd for fuel when I'm going over Crow or up Bollinger. They don't bitch when I fill my bottles with water at the fountain.
KWC blog promotes SF FFF appearance on Sunday, but says he won't go himself because of the admission cost.
Roger J Kearey is a believer.
