WSJ-Cyclist Floyd Landis Admits Doping, Alleges Use by Armstrong and Others

from the Wall Street Journal, May 20th:

Floyd Landis, the American cyclist whose 2006 Tour De France victory was nullified after a positive doping test, has sent a series of emails to cycling officials and sponsors admitting to, and detailing, his systematic use of performance enhancing drugs during his career. The emails also claim that other riders and cycling officials allegedly participated in doping, including seven-time Tour de France winner Lance Armstrong.

Ed note: Sui Juris here. Just wanted to haul this note from Chris out of the comments below:

Hi all

I should chime in as the gatekeeper here (sorta) —

1. Am way out of pocket today so I can’t meaningfully engage
2. From a very quick skim of this thread I can only say THANK YOU all for keeping it so respectful. This is by far the third rail of cycloblogging and the biggest threat to our most cherished asset, the site’s role as a place for healthy chat. Please proceed with this in mind.
3. If you see Landis/lance/doping chat in other threads, please gently direct that chat here or to other doping threads that occur. Gives people a chance to think about something else. THANKS!
