The CyclingNews says that Floyd Landis is still being offered $100,000 by American cycling enthusiast Michael Robertson. The catch? Landis will have to take a lie detector test to receive that money. The offer has apparently been on the table for almost a year.
The Guardian Unlimited publishes an opinion piece in which the author states he doesn't want to invest the emotion he may have in the past, and therefore in the post-Landis post-OP world of the Tour de France he doesn't care who wins.
The Telegraph UK writes that though the Tour de France may have appeared to lose some of its Home support earlier this week, as the riders rolled through champagne country and the people were back to see their beloved race. In one town they passed through the names of past winner were displayed on a large board, all were there even Bijarne Riis who recently admitted doping to win the 1996 Tour. All were there, except Floyd Landis.
Eurosport notes that Matthias Kessler faces a two year suspension after his "B" sample tested positive for adverse testosterone/epitestosterone levels acquired prior to the Fleche Wallonne spring classic race. His ratio was stated at 85:1.
Greely Tribune column has a lot of snark directed towards Landis to explain his current Tour ennui:
Oh, there's still some debate as to whether Landis did in fact take doses of testostrone that would give a fleet of race horses a buzz, but tests say he did, and that sours it even if, in fact, he is found innocent during his appeal. No one expects that to happen, by the way.
Frank Deford explains why Landis doesn't get much sympathy:
"That shows that when you're loyal to a team -- you're a fan of a team -- you stay much more loyal to the sport," he said. "If Floyd Landis was on somebody's team, we'd be much more inclined to give him the benefit of the doubt."
The RoadBike got an answer from Travis Tygart to a question about how and when the decision would be announced. No new information on the timing, but he says parties will be told at the same time, and USADA will put out a press release via their usual channels.
Godstruck has some fun with this year's favorite and not so favorite things about the Tour de France, but he wonders why when he does a 2007 TdF image search he gets Floyd Landis.
Better to Get a Flat Than to get Shot, a page dedicated to Greg LeMond, rakes over Landis' answers on NPR yesterday concerning the Will Geoghegan incident during May's USADA hearings.
No One But Me had to regrettably let a dear old friend go, and is also curious as to why it's so easy this year to find TdF coverage on YAHOO, it's never been there before. Could it be the Landis Effect?
Phantom Reflections wishes Floyd Landis could have been cleared to compete in this year's TdF, and gives us some truisms learned from watching the Tour for a few years.
The Stale Madeline, one of our favorite cookies BTW, thought that Floyd Landis was a religious fanatic, until she heard him yesterday on NPR. She now likes him.
Martin Dugard's TdF Blog renders a positive opinion on one of Vino's "assets" and remembers a strategy used by Floyd Landis in the 2005 TdF.
bigbenaugust passed his blood and urine tests, so take that.
The Dave Daily has plenty to share about lots of subjects, and thinks that the silence about Floyd Landis and last year's Tour de France is deafening.
TdFBlog flaks Bonnie DeSimone's blog after reading about it here. But we aren't the "official" anything.
