Earlier...

Floyd Landis is taking part in the Cohutta 100 which started this morning at 7:00AM EDT near the Georgia/Tennessee border. Thus far there is no news available on what is happening, but if any comes our way we'll be sure to pass it along.

Colorado Springs Gazette sings the praises and hosannas of a Greg LeMond appearance for the Air Force Academy Cycling Team.

Blogs
Rant ponders the Di Luca case in which the cyclist was cleared of suspicions he doped by CONI, but who really knows what the "truth" is in this matter?

Rant
also notes yesterday's deadline for final submissions in the Landis CAS appeal, and he wishes Floyd good luck in the Cohutta 100! Go get 'em indeed.
