It’s official. The Associated Press is reporting that Floyd Landis has lost his doping case and will relinquish his 2006 Tour de France title and will face a two-year ban from cycling (that would be given the effective date of January 30, 2007). However, he can still appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport. The AP article mentions Landis has already spent $2 million of his own money defending his innocence, and will need to spend more to take his appeal to the next level.
The arbitrators voted two to one in favor of upholding the positive tests.
