Four days after the tour ends, it seems like 2006 champion Floyd Landis has failed a doping test. I’ll be considerably less impressed with his riding if this turns out to be true.
Tour de France champion Floyd Landis tested positive for high levels of testosterone during the race, his Phonak team said Thursday on its Web site.
The statement came a day after the UCI, cycling’s world governing body, said an unidentified rider had failed a drug test during the Tour.
So, we’ll see, I guess. I honestly hope that this turns out to be much to do about nothing. Otherwise it’ll be right back to that damn headbutt.
