    Has Lance commented on the Landis situation??

    I wonder if Lance Armstrong has had any public reaction or statement regarding Landis' positive A test for testosterone. Has he?
    Does anyone know? My guess would be sympathy because of feelings of deja vu?

    Landis still has to formerly request or schedule the B test with the UCI. I think hes doing that tommorow?

    Lance said that until the B sample is tested he has nothing to say about it.

    Maybe he woulda been happy actually. I heard they are starting to clear those who were accused in that operation? Lance might have been cleared hypothetically speaking. In actuality its Jan that might be cleared no? What about Basso?

    If/when these athletes are cleared do you think they have enough for a suit? I mean, they were disallowed to perform their job (and in some cases even fired from their jobs) because of results of an investigation. I don't know all the facts. I really havn't paid that much attention to it.

    I just know that if I were held out of Le Tour, then cleared of any wrong-doing after the race concluded, I'd be seriously pissed!
    Yeah, I've been on your wheel for a good long time. I'll be more than happy to pull us all if you'd just slow down a bit. ;)

    Lance and Floyd aren't the best of friends. However, Lance did talk some smack about French testing protocols on a local Austin, Texas TV interview today. Then, as he thought the camera turned away he said, "thank goodness, they didn't bust me on all that EPO is was on."

    Are you kidding around? Did Lance really say that as the camera was turned?

    Lance Who?
    ------------------------------------

    Armstrong never got caught cheating.
    That probably makes him as good a cheater as a cyclist.

    Check out ESPN. Lance did comment about Landis' situation. Most of it wasn't even pertaining to Landis, but was a hated diatribe to Greg Lemond, who made a comment actually supporting Floyd and saying what a stand-up guy he is, but also saying that stricter controls need to be in place for the sport. Lance is a f-ing punk. Plain and simple.

    Lance was on Larry King last night and commented on the situation. He came out ifn full support of Flandis and made sure everyone knows that the lab that leaked is EPO tests is the same lab that tested Floyd’s sample.

    So it looks like if people accept that Floyd's results are truthful, then they will have to accept that Lance used EPO. Cool.

    Not necessarily. People will only accept what they want to accept. Lance has never tested positive yet alot of people can't and won't accept it. Floyd tested for abnormalities and most people can't accept that it's possible that he may have done something wrong. Personally I think the Lance didn't dope and the fact that there is no proof confirms it. I don't think Landis doped because it's extrememly odd that what he's reported to have taken would only show up on one test. It just doesn't add up. Hopefully we'll all soon know the truth. Or at least the closest thing possible to the truth. Either way I keep riding my bike and knowing that I don't dope and knowing that soon I'll ride my first century. Everything else is not really that important. To me at least.

    Lance is stating that Floyd's test is as beleiveable as Lance's positive EPO from 1999.

    That's Lance himself saying that if you accept Floyd's positive, you should accept his.

    He's not the cleverest guy.

    It also says that if you accept the lab screwed up Lance's, you should accept they screwed up Floyds.

    Sounds pretty clever to me

    Sure - but if you accept that Floyd's test was a screw up, then you can no longer be a fan of UCI accredited cycling events. Goodbye to the sport, basically.

    If you can't trust them to test riders properly, then how can you take the sport seriously?

    I can be a fan of whatever I want, regardless of my feelings toward the governing body. I watch it for the fun and to support my favorite teams/riders. Not to support the UCI.

    'riders' being a term defined by the UCI, and who under the rules of the UCI and 'team' bering a term defined by the UCI and under the rules of the UCI.

    "Riders" is a term I am able to define without the help of the almighty UCI, and "team" as in a group of "riders" aiming for the same goal (usually).

    I don't agree with everything MLB or the NFL does either, but it doesn't mean I can't enjoy the sport. You have to remember that with out the fans, bike racing is nothing more than a bunch of people riding bikes. It is first and foremost, entertainment.

    Half the entertainment value in any sport is fans pissing and moaning about the rules.

    If those riders are taking part in a UCI race, they are defined as such by the UCI, and the UCI can stop someone being able to be defined as a rider, by barring participation. The UCI are indeed 'almigtly', in that without them you would have no sport to watch.

    I don't see how you could watch a sport which does something as bad as (in your opinion) stripping someone of their title in the tdf because of a 'bad test'.

    If the UCI starts stripping titles of riders when there is credible evidence that the testing process is flawed, the UCI will lose fans. They need to keep a fan base or they will go away. The fans are where the money is that keeps the sport alive. How many of those people you see lining the mountain stages are there cheering the UCI vs. how many are there to see the riders and cheer them on? It's a sport, and #1, it is entertainment.
    Piss the fans off and cycling will find a new governing body, or split into different "leagues". That probably wouldn't be a bad thing.

    bellweatherman:

    I think you have it backwards. Armstrong has NEVER failed a drug test and was probably THE most tested athlete on the planet the last 2 or 3 years he raced. Lemond is the f-ing punk. Did you watch the TDF and see all of the features OLN did on him? He was going on and on and on about all of the Tours he could have won if he had not got shot. Maybe so, but let some OTHER American win more than 3 (Lemond's total) and he HAS to be doping. Lemond is no longer the American icon when it comes to cycling and he has become bitter about it.

    And now, he wants Landis to admit doping.

    I would give up cycling before I rode a Lemond bike.
