Monday Roundup

The St Petersburg Times' Tom Jones was watching Saturday's coverage of The US Open Cycling Championships in Richmond, VA and noting that Floyd Landis was interviewed during the coverage:

Landis was a guest on NBC's coverage Saturday of the U.S. (cycling) Open. NBC's crew asked tough questions and Landis, to his credit, answered all of them.

"First of all, I'm confident and I'm proud of what I did," Landis said. "I'm innocent. So I'm confident because of that. I'm a little hesitant to say that I'm sure of what the outcome will be because until now we've not been treated with what you would expect even if you were a criminal in this country."

The Eagle Times of New Hampshire prints a story about a program for increasing comfort in road bicycles through a collaboration instituted by Specialized Bicycles and The Boulder Center for Sports Medicine director Dr. Andy Pruitt who has worked extensively with Floyd Landis.

Pedal ,Canada's cycling magazine, covered the US Open Cycling Championships on Saturday in Richmond, VA which was won by Canadian cyclist Svein Tuft. Among the chilled and cheering throngs was 2006 Tour de France Champion Floyd Landis.

Kattrags spent part of her time at the US Open Cycling Championships on Saturday in Richmond, VA with "nice guy" Floyd Landis.

Rant notes the hearing is coming up, and that we'll finally get to see all the cards on the table. He notes concerns the table might still be fixed, and points out things you might do to help ensure an honest count.

Claire at Chinablogs writes that it's only 55 degrees in her Beijing, China apartment, but that spring really is here. She competed in a race on Saturday and was the "first loser" but feels that, like Floyd Landis, she can't make excuses.

George Parker invokes Landis in two similar but slightly different rants about the Apple iPhone, one at adscam, and one at adhurl. Summary: it's just a phone.
