    Simply remarkable. I watched his story on Good Morning America last week. A well-deserved win, and a fine human being.

    Quite a story of willpower. Everyone had written him off.

    Hm... dunno.
    To me it's just sounding a little bit too familiar...

    No offense, and congrats to the dear lad.
    But I hope next year 'the pack' will have the guts to attack some more!

    :p

    Au revoir!

    Landis gives positive drugs test


    http://newsimg.bbc.co.uk/media/images/41936000/jpg/_41936806_landis.jpg Landis finished ahead of Oscar Pereiro to win the Tour de France

    Tour de France winner Floyd Landis has given a positive drugs test, according to his Phonak team.
    The 30-year-old American, who claimed victory in the Tour de France on Sunday, has tested positive for the male sex hormone testosterone.
    The positive test came after stage 17 of the Tour, which saw Landis record an epic victory after struggling on the final climb the day before.
    Landis has been suspended pending results of his B sample analysis.

    YOU SEE?! I JUST KNEW IT!
    Something fishy about this guy...
    Darn! This is sóóóó bad for the sport.

    Shame on him if he did it.

    I'm in favor of either:
    Or you let all dope run free for all in the peloton;
    ór you act upon zero-tolerance.
    In this last case the consequence is a ban for life (not for just a few years.)

    :isay:
    It's about time the public get to watch athletes with equal chances again; one way or the other!
    (I really don't care; it's not my body their messing with)
    I'm just fed up with being deceived! <snip> I say: Hang him high :isay: :mad:

    Slam :mad:

    This thread has been closed to to the ethnic attack that I had to remove from the previous post. This is absolutely unacceptable no matter what people/s you wish to attempt degrading in general.
