The CyclingNews reports that Jan Ullrich, who feels sponsors and money are bound to leave the sport for those who want to ride for the love of it, will write a "tell all" book about his involvement with OP. In more news while the Landis case is still pending, the CAS has scheduled two more cycling related hearings:
The CAS announced on Friday that it has scheduled hearings in two further cases involving cyclists, Aketza Peña and Matthias Kessler. Peña's case is scheduled to be heard on July 3. He tested positive for Nandrolene in April 2007 and was suspended until August 9, 2009. Kessler tested positive for testosterone in April 2007, and was suspended for two years by the Swiss Cycling Federation. His hearing is scheduled for July 23.
Lindsay posts her harrowing story of traversing flooded out roads and bridge detours to just get to the Lumberjack 100 yesterday, but nothing about Floyd Landis. No 2008 race results are listed at this time on the official site either.
MMBA Forums say Landis was a no-show. So, add "get to the race" before "get bike to the race" and "stay on bike" to the race checklist. Who knew MTB racing was so hard?
Eightzero is just a tad confused about some of the listings in the VeloNews Tour de France guide:
Page 221 lists Riis as the winner of the 1996 TdF, but the 2006 winner is listed as Oscar Pereiro, not Floyd Landis. There is a footnote on the photo on page 226 about Riis. So. why isn't Ullrich (the second place winner in 1996) awarded a second win? Hmmm? Could it be the ASO has decided that...nah...that wouldn't be fair. Wait...what?
