Wish him the best.
FWIW, I still think his stage 17 ride was awesome.
This has proliferated about 40 threads in 10 minutes in several forums.
What will be interesting is how he will now spin this, and how Flandis fans will now spin this. I predict more bullsh-t.
Gee, real sorry for all those who bought his book and donated $250,000+ to his defense.
Is it time to get back to reality yet?
They did rule that the initial epi-test test was invalid:
In its 84-page decision, the majority found the initial screening test to measure Landis' testosterone levels — the testosterone-to-epitestosterone test — was not done according to World Anti-Doping Agency rules.
But the more precise and expensive carbon-isotope ration analysis (IRMS), performed after a positive T-E test is recorded, was accurate, the arbitrators said, meaning "an anti-doping rule violation is established."
Can somebody give Pereiro a yellow jersey, please? TIA.
Exactly what part of "guilty" don't you guys understand? the verdict was not "kinda guilty".
Enough, experts have looked into this for over a year in painful detail, everything was studied to death. People were lied to, people were blackmailed, money was taken under false pretenses.
Boom goes the dynamite. Fark him. He lost any respect from me over the LeMond thing. He can go eat crap now.
Landis = proven cheater
Armstrong = clean, until proven dirty
So an American tour winner was guilty of cheating. Now some of the American haters on the other side of the pond can focus their venom on Landis, and let the unfounded Armstrong accusations rest now. Unless of course evidence shows Armstrong cheated.
how much longer before the drug troll shows up on the forum?
I'm a Landis fan, and I knew he was going to lose this. I don't think anyone actually thought he would be found innocent.
UCI is a joke, WADA is a joke. Regardless of if he is a cheater or not the test wasn't done correctly so you can't trust the results period.

Oddly enough, in middle school I was accused of stealing a trophy from a case outside our gym. It was found a couple of days later in another part of the school. The teacher that accused me said she had seen me around the area after school. Indeed, I had been. Matter of fact, I sat there every day waiting for my mom to pick me up from cross country practice. The school administration gave me a one day in-school suspension. During my time sitting alone in the office, I suggested they fingerprint me, being the wise-as$ little sh1t that I was. Realizing that they didn't have a damn thing on me, it was removed from my record, and the principal apologized. I still missed the Civil War Re-enactment that day, though.
The point: in cycling, just like school, they can suspend you for SUSPICION of guilt, which is why he should have thrown a sample at them ASAP, if he had nothing to lose.
Edit: When it was found, the only finger prints on its very shiny, metallic surface, were large. As in those commonly found on adult hands. Turns out the coach for that sport had moved it, and not told anyone.
God I wish I had the balls to dope.
