Blackbird Images visited with Floyd Landis Friday night in Harrisonburg,VA and found Floyd to be unassuming and easy to talk to. Blackbird noted Landis asked that a media interview wait until he had spoken with all of the people who had come there to see him. A couple of nice images are provided by Blackbird who is a wedding photographer.
Re:Cycling's Sunday Notebook reminds us of the Floyd Landis watch, the Vuelta, and Dave Zabriskie's US Pro TT win yesterday. Thanks for the plug.
UltraRob posts that the SM100 in which Floyd Landis will be riding today, is harder than the Leadville100. In an update UltraRob note the Landis third place.
Harlan is riding in the SM100 today and thinks that Floyd Landis MUST love cycling to be showing up at events which will give him little financial retirum and a lot of pain.
Drunkcyclist thinks that the delay in the announcement of the decision in the Landis hearings is hard to take, even with an alleged end date in sight.
Fatty had a contest with prizes and everything, and someone sent him a payoff on a bet, an autographed copy of "Positively False" signed to "The Fat Cyclist". Cool.
