Say it ain’t so, Phloyd!

I don’t know what to think about the accusations that Floyd Landis had impossibly elevated (and yet so far undisclosed) levels of testosterone. (Bike riders have about four times normal levels anyway.) Certainly anyone doping in such an obvious way would know they would get caught, especially a stage winner, so I really have to wonder how it could be true. But I was once convinced of Tyler Hamiton’s innocence, and the evidence pointed rather incontrovertibly in the other direction.

For a more informed view than mine, you can listen to Phil Liggett.
