Landis B Sample Open Thread

Testing got underway today. From CN...

Floyd Landis' Tour de France stage 17 B sample was opened on Thursday at the Chatenay-Malabry laboratory in France in his presence, along with his lawyers, experts from the US Anti-Doping Agency, and the UCI. Analysis of the sample is expected to take two days, and Landis should know on Saturday whether his high testosterone:epitestosterone level is confirmed.

"We continue to maintain the same line of defence: the positive must be due to an endogenous production of testosterone, and in addition we understand that the detection method is not trustworthy in proving whether the origin is exogenous," said Luis Sanz, who, along with Jose Maria Buxeda and Howard Jacobs, forms part of Landis' legal defence.
