    Lance and Landis together again?

    Article in Bloomberg today about cycling, drugs, Lance and possibly Floyd?

    Sounds like a very remote possibility.

    In the book "Armstrong's War", Landis and Armstrong had a falling out. Landis went to another team. Could they kiss and make up? Who knows.

    The real question is does Landis have the fitness. He has not looked that great this year on Team Ouch and he is older.

    The other thing to keep in mind is that Radio Shack needs about 20 pro riders to cover the races and provide the sponsor his advertising impressions. The Tour de France team will be picked from the 20 pro riders. It is conceivable that Landis could be on the team and not ride with Lance in any races.

    I suspect that Radio Shack has given Lance cart blanche in selecting the personnel for the team but he will be mindful not to piss off the sponsor.

    I can't see that happening.

    I would say "Not likely!" but you never know.

    Landis vented on Astana when he missed out on a TDF stage win this passed July. His comments were way off the mark. His forte now seems to be leading-out sprinters. Never an area of interest for Bruneal and Armstrong.

    I believe you are referring to George Hincapie

    I hope they do team up - I have a soft spot for Floyd - drugs or not, anyone who could do what he did with a shattered hip, no matter what he was on is a hero in my book. I think they would make a great team - older now, maybe ego is not as much as a big deal. It's time for age and experience to win the day.

    I doubt Floyd would be welcome in the Tour. They have a history of denying former dopers, especially those that got busted in their race. He could ride the other events, though he would certainly have to rededicate himself and stay away from In and Out Burger.
