While I was at WSSC in Miami, Floyd Landis was in my town racing. His lack of training showed (too many hours in a court room)! Josiah Middaugh, a friend and a former personal trainer at my club (he recently moved to another club) who used to teach Spinning for me (now he does computrainer classes), is also a professional triathlete and North American Xterra champion. He actually beat Floyd on the uphill time trial on Vail Pass!

While in Miami, between my sessions on Saturday, I got a call from a friend who said, "You are so bummed you're not here! I just met Bob Roll!" My husband was going to attend the TT, but got the start time mixed up and missed it. I would have loved to have seen it (but I wouldn't have missed WSSC for the world)! Vail pass is a ride we do quite often here, but racing up it would suck.

Floyd is supposed to be back out here for the Leadville 100 in August, but he better get his butt on a mountain bike and train! Lance had said he was going to do that race too, but pulled out already.

Floyd is on the cover of Bicycle magazine this month. They seem to be trying to make the World Anti-Doping Agency and its policies and enforcement the bad guy and Floyd the victim.

They tell a compelling story, but they were one of the first to come out and proclaim Floyd "The Next Big Thing" in cycling after Lance retired, so I'm not sure how objective they are.

Floyd may not have been training, but deadly Nedly sure was! I met him at Mt. Washington when he rode as #50 on his 50th birthday. What a nice, humble, friendly guy! And impressive fitness and drive, to boot. :)

I don't think Floyd is racing in any events that require drug testing.
Hmmmmmm.

and no drugs.

which is ... sad. I'm so disgusted by his lack of integrity - clean or not.

Floyd is on the Tour again but this time pushing his book.

Mark your calendars...
Floyd may be coming to a bookstore near you,
promoting his book, "Positively False."
