A few weeks ago, after I wrote a few posts about doping, I read a book by Floyd Landis. As you may know, Landis won the 2006 Tour De France, just to have the title stripped because of a positive test for a skewed testosterone/epitestosterone ratio. He was also suspended from the UCI for two years.
Throughout the ordeal, Floyd vigourously maintained his innocence by, amongst other things, organizing a long legal battle and writing a book. I thought the book was written pretty well, and it seemed sincere. I felt for the guy. I wanted to believe.
But I'm not even going to tell you the name of the book, because it doesn't matter. It turns out it was all b*llsh*t. Landis admitted today that he used performance enhancing drugs throughout his entire career.
Here is the story on CNN.com
He's also trying to pull down Lance Armstrong as well.
What a loser.
