FloydLandis.com is back, sort of, as a redirect to the OUCH Sports Medicine site. We learned this via email from Rant, himself.
NY Daily News ITeam Blog snidely comments on Armstrong, and does a Landis drive-by en-route.
Cycling Weekly raps cyclists for offering any defense to doping charges, saying in a round-about way, "if you've been wronged, too bad, and shut up."
Is there anything more nauseating than the pathetic protestations of innocence and accusations of wrong-doing from a rider who has tested positive?

If you believe you have been wronged, sue the laboratories for screwing up. Sue WADA for drafting illegal laws. Sue the sport's governing body and your national federations. See how far you get with that kind of action.
But do us all a favour and stop whining to favourable sections of the press, who are only too happy to help make your apologies for you and prove your case.
Otherwise, shut up, serve your ban and stop bleating, because it will only make you even more unpopular than you already are, which is jolly unpopular indeed.

Frank had some Floyd company on a training ride in North Carolina, and held on with some automotive assistance.
Racejunkie is very impressed with Jan Ullrich's current legal team, which now takes top spot in RJ's "cycling legal eagles" from Ivan Basso's crew.

And they said Jan was not coachable.
