    We need to check his bike, too. See a motor in the seat-tube?

    …carlton, you nasty english bulldog…how dare you, sir ???…last evening, i was assuming the “bike motor” thingy was gonna be the BIG news of the day…

    …what lack of clairvoyance on my part !!!…

    …i hope mr floyd landis can weather the storm that will now befall him…while he brought so much down on himself previously, it's gonna get worse…
    …i applaud his effort…it's never too late for altruism & i honestly don't believe floyd has an ulterior motive at this point…

    …then again, i've proven how naive i can be, in the past…

    @TOm: That, sir, is pure gold. Danica Patrick on a bike for the win!

    Floyd Landis is confused. He didn't win the Tour de France, he seemed to win it, tested positive and was subsequently stripped of the win. He's a fraud, a liar and a slanderer. The sooner he goes away, the better.

    Also, love the comment in the SI spread posted by Carlton about Lance Armstrong “a seven time Tour de France winner.” Shouldn't that be “THE seven time Tour de France Winner”.

    I so much wanted to believe that Floyd was framed. I bought and read his book. I even bought a Phonak jersey in support. I was convinced. In the end, it seems I was the fool for believing and trusting him. What a shame. While I think it may be giving more credit to Floyd than he deserves, his lack of integrity makes him into a bit of tragic hero. The thing about tragic heroes is that they end in ruin. And so it is here.
