So Floyd Landis gets screwed by the majority of the good ole boys panel of arbitrators, Patrice Brunet and Richard McLaren. How absolutely disgusting and appalling to see that those two arbitrators just followed the party line. CYA at all costs. See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil, if you know what is good for your career in the anti-doping bureaucracy...

Christopher Campbell was the only person who had the cojones to stand up and speak the facts and the truth. "In many instances, Mr. Landis sustained his burden of proof beyond a reasonable doubt," Campbell wrote. "The documents supplied by LNDD are so filled with errors that they do not support an Adverse Analytical Finding. Mr. Landis should be found innocent."

CAS appeal? Forget it... The tentacles of the anti-doping political machine have already wound around anyone and everyone involved with CAS... There is no hope there... USADA, WADA, LNDD, ASO - they all float in the same cesspool...

  • I agree, but frankly, Landis does not come out smelling like a rose either. The French lab and various anti-doping agencies are not to be trusted, and many of the riders are not to be trusted. Who knows anymore. I must say that I definitely care a lot less about pro cycling than I did a few years ago. It reminds me of the NBA.

    Both the organizers and athletes in the sport need to clean up the product and present a fair competition to the fans, in a a timely manner, without all of the drama, scandals, and political games.

    I came for a 20 day race, not a two year spectacle of cycling's dirty laundry. Myself and any other fans will be interested again when there are many objective drug testing labs, not just one French lab. And when there are clearly defined procedures that athletes and organizers follow, so that we can get on with enjoying the races.
