Velonews runs their pointed interview with Landis on the main page. We covered this Friday when we saw it on the beta, but they just made it more visible, and others are noticing it now.
The CylingNews this morning reposts that the UCI , convinced of his innocence in OP, is trying to find sprinter Allan Davis a new team. The Age says that UCI vice-president Ray Godkin, a former Cycling Australia official, is "convinced" Davis had not violated anti-doping regulations, and will be helping him find a team for the coming European season. Wouldn't it be nice if the UCI found it in its heart to support all of its riders thusly? Even those who may have been suspected but not convicted or accused of doping should get this kind of support, it always pays to know someone at the top.
Variety reviews "Bigger, Stronger, Faster", the documentary about steroid use in American that contains an interview with Floyd Landis. They give it a thumbs up:
At 106 minutes, the film is long, but never dull. Its early playfulness (augmented by retro-styled animation and the tongue-in-cheek use of tracks such as "Eye of the Tiger" and "Holding Out for a Hero") blooms into poignant observation as the investigation takes shape.
Racejunkie noticed the Landis interview, and provides the concise summary: Floyd may just have chewed through his leash to the horror of his lawyers. For once, it isn't RJ adding the pointed comments, it was in the original. Would anyone else like to get David Millar and Floyd Landis in the same room at the same time? RJ thinks Landis could be an attorney's Client From Hell for straight talk like this.
RacerBlueSquirrel picks out a favorite quote from the VN interview:
Sometimes an innocent guy is going to be convicted, sometimes the guilty guy is going to be exonerated, but you have to make sure that both sides follow the rules to the same standard. You can't just say, well, we just know everyone is cheating so f--k it, we're just going to do what we want because we don't care.
Rant writes more about the extensive profile Bonnie Ford did last week about Slipstream, and wonders about former Landis trainer Allen Lim.
Sacramento Mystery Cyclist says that even though dopers do suck, people like Floyd Landis have been unjustly sanctioned based on faulty lab work. If we are going to clean up the sport let's start at the top and go all the way, including higher standards for lab techs.
The Duckman read that Floyd Landis will be participating in the NUE MTB series this year and he is excited about meeting Floyd and racing against him, er, um, being on the same course as Landis. His goals for the year start with finishing all his races. Good luck on that!
The Boulder Report notes what Lance Armstrong may have had for breakfast, does anyone care? And Joe Lindsey notes that Cipo is in at Rock Racing, while Floyd Landis sounds angry. Go figure.
Podium Cafe says read the Landis interview over at VN, it's worth the time if you are "burned out" already.
I ride I write thinks Landis is guilty for now, but deserves due process.
VeloGoddess just did one of Landis' favorite training rides, up Palomar, and found snow. She might have found Landis -- go back a few more days VG, it's good for you anyway.
