Rant ponders, after reading a NY Times piece, the possibility that Floyd Landis might have gotten a fairer shake in a regular courtroom.
Racejunkie wonders why, if he's so afraid of French cycling fans, Lance A. would poke them with a stick. And hey Tom, slow down!!
Life on Two Wheels says Floyd has been training lots lately, and behind an BMW motorcycle no less.
Floyd was looking really smooth and good. I am stoked to see him back out training, and can't wait to see him race this next season. The bad news for the big teams in the country is that, if they hope to win any stage races this year they better sign some better racers.

The USADA reply in the Landis Federal case ought to arrive this week, so watch the docket and give us a holler if you see it before we do. (A copy would be nice too!) Yes, you need a PACER login to see the docket.
