Floyd Landis Interview

http://sports.yahoo.com/video/player...Depth/25954415

I hope he does well in NASCAR. I'd get a kick out of that.

He does a real good job explaining how/why you can still be a fan of cycling despite all the doping going on. That's exactly how I feel and he puts it into words better than I ever have.

I don't know why they let you shamelessly pimp that POS website all the time.

Just because he is an expert doper does not mean he is telling the truth about anyone else.

The expert dopers are the ones who don't get caught.

Well, they do, but they always have the local PD's bomb squad disarm them.

after watching this interview, I'm more inclined than i was yesterday to believe he's telling what he thinks is true.

Whether Landis is telling the truth or not. I could care less. He took public donations for his defense knowing he was guilty.

Because he was an insider that knew just about as much than anybody. Because he has more balls than Lance ever had. Because, in spite of his long time dishonesty he still has more integrity than Lance. And he is far more interesting than Lance who can do nothing but smoothly bull**** everyone.

Not even. He seems to have left plenty of credible evidence. The experts would be found among those who we don't read about. Take Hincapie for example. You didn't hear much accusing him other than having been on LA's teams until he reportedly admitted it to the Feds.

How exactly can you still watch it even when there is doping? What's the difference 1 mph?

I got a lot more than that out of it anyway, very insightful not that he had a choice, thanks for posting.

Doping is awesome. I'd do it if the products were cheap and readily available at my local pharmacy.

There's probably cheap way to get into blood doping. And you probably could get most of the stuff at your local pharmacy.

At this point in time, Floyd's best career move would be to change his surname to Kardashian. He'd be just as relevant. Sorry, I got burned by that a*****e a few years ago. If he said it was sunny out, I'd pack my wet weather riding gear.

Yeah, someday I'd love the chance to ask him about the donation I sent him. Preferably with a cricket bat at arm's reach.
