I am amazed at my investment in Floyd Landis’ achievements in the 2006 Tour de France. While I am very clear that even the most decent of riders can end up dopers (thank you, Tyler, for that lesson), Landis’ alleged violation continues to make no sense to me. Tomorrow, at 5am EDT, we are supposed to get the results of the B sample. Like most of the rest of the world, I expect it will come back with with same result. I wish that could settle matters. But it really won’t. Not for me, and not for most cycling fans. With respect to pro cycling, the only thing I want more than to be reassured of Floyd’s innocence, is to be certain of the truth.
Ah well. Until then, more from the man himself.
