Salt Lake Tribune - Tour de France winner flunks drug test

Salt Lake Tribune - Tour de France winner flunks drug test:
"LONDON - Tour de France champion Floyd Landis tested positive for high levels of testosterone during the race, his Phonak team said Thursday on its Web site.
The statement came a day after the UCI, cycling's world governing body, said an unidentified rider had failed a drug test during the Tour.
And the statement came just four days after Landis stood on the victory podium on the Champs-Elysees, succeeding seven-time winner Lance Armstrong as an American winner in Paris. "

Oy. He just needs to go on tour with Barry Bonds and Hulk Hogan now. They can call themselves Champions of the Roid Rage. Something like that.

Where are the good old days when athlete's were just heavy drinking, hard gambling, prostitute chasing, good old all American sonsuhbitches?


  1. This fuckin bums me out.

  2. One conclusion I have derived from all of this mess is, I wish Greg Lemond would just shut the hell up and go away. He seems to have that "pissed off because he's old and his glory days are behind him, therefore he loathes those that are in the prime of their lives" approach to every interview he does.

  3. Agreed lisa b and swamp croctch. Agreed.
