Re: Landis Test Positive for Doping

PS I'm not saying I believe Landis cheated, but I am saying he looks like Kid Rock.

When it all comes down to it, cycling is an individual sport. So, wouldn't the knowledge that you only beat these other guys because you cheated always be somewhere in the back of your brain? Are they so obsessed with winning at all costs that they don't care if they only won because they cheated?
Or maybe they think "well, since everyone else is probably cheating, I'm just leveling the playing field."

I've just never understood why someone would cheat in an individual sport. (for some odd reason I can see why people do it in team sports, I can't explain that one) Maybe I'm just naive.
If I really wanted an adrenaline boost, I'd just snort a line before I started biking.

Re: Landis Test Positive for Doping

Definition of Doping. When talking of cyclists, it's usually blood doping.

I'll wait for the B sample to be tested before jumping to conclusions (when testing, the WADA takes 2 samples each time). If he did, then he should face the consequences, but an abnormally high level of testosterone could be from anything, not necessarily doping.

Re: Landis Test Positive for Doping

Update:

ESPN.com - CYCLING - Landis sample shows high and synthetic testosterone

"Floyd Landis was fired by his team and the Tour de France no longer considered him its champion after his second doping sample tested positive Saturday for higher-than-allowed levels of testosterone."

Cycling is officially going down the drain.

Re: Landis Test Positive for Doping

i kinda thought he was guilty right after the first announcement. he didn't really say "i'm not guilty" right away (no immediate strong denial of any kind), and his lawyers said they excepted him to be found guilty.

then came a plethora of (5-6) different crappy excuses. Maybe he is the victim, but with the history, his medical condition, and they way he's acted since being accused, it's a bit hard to believe he's completely innocent.

ESPN.com - CYCLING - Landis sample shows high and synthetic testosterone
watch the video. the guy (John Eustice) explains how the ratios could be what they are and the testing and what Landis can do next.

I'm finding it hard to believe he's innocent, but we shall see.

Re: Landis Test Positive for Doping

At least he's maintaining his innocence. If you're caught in a lie like that, just keep on saying it until it's true.

Re: Landis Test Positive for Doping

ESPN had on a guy, probably a doctor of something or other, who was saying that it really wouldn't have made any sense for Landis to take one or two shots of testosterone in the middle of the race because it wouldn't really do much for him. Since he had passed tests earlier in the race this could mean that there was something out of the ordinary (besides cheating) going on with these tests.

One way or the other, I would think that if he were really innocent he would have come out from the get-go and gone insane trying to plead his case.

Re: Landis Test Positive for Doping

I just want to see a NON-French test done.

We can't believe anything as long as the Frenchies are handling it.
