    I'd be amazed if the WADA let it go.

    I think I'll make some popcorn and head over to the Professional Cycling forum to watch the fireworks.

    Those darned druggie cows in Spain framed him. I wonder how the cows got the blood bag plastic?

    Doped or not, I still love watching that man climb.

    I think its disgusting and terrible how people treat Lance Armstrong, especially after winning 7 Tour de France Titles while on drugs!

    Somehow a great Chick-fil-A ad could be made out of this post. Cows parachute in on Floyd Landis while he is riding in a Spanish national jersey.

    Here is what I think the US response should be... Today, the USADA reviewed Floyd Landis' A and B samples and based upon the Contador findings determined that Landis' urine was contaminated by chamois cream he purchased in Spain. The USADA further determined that Landis' confession was a result of stress and delusion associated with the cream. He has been officially reinstated into pro cycling and now designated the winner of the 2006 TdF. President Obama apologized to Landis and instructed the DOJ to stop any investigation into Armstrong' activities.

    As always, follow the money. Pro cycling and his new team could not afford to have him banned. It will be interesting to see how he does this year in the grand tours. Anybody that excels for 3 weeks at that level of performance is doing something beyond taking over the counter vitamins and eating right.

    Spain has cleared him, but WADA and UCI (and of course Judge Judy) have 30 days to respond. He isn't out of the clen fed cattle pen just yet.

    Spain have cleared him and the UCI may follow suit. Don't think the fans will though. Very hard doing a TT with a pump thrown out of the crowd into his front wheel.
