They've been saying that for weeks. Just goes along with the whole SNAFU. "Yeah, we'll just string it along and wait for the "right" moment to announce our decision".

No decision from what I've seen yet.

ESPN Page 2's Jim Caple did an interview with Floyd on the bike recently that had some nice quotes:

I ask Landis how he responds when people tell him, "I want to believe you, but I just can't because it's so hard these days."

"I'd say, 'OK, fine. Don't believe me,'" he says. "But take a look at this stuff in the lab and tell me you'd like to be subjected to that type of testing. It's fine if you don't believe me, but just admit that they didn't prove that I doped. Nobody should be subjected to crappy work like that. If I did my job like those guys did theirs in the anti-doping agencies, no one would have ever heard of me. If I write down in my training diary that I rode for six hours yesterday to make it look good when I only rode for one, I wouldn't win any f------ races.
