After four years and 1 million spent attempting to prove that he was
innocent of taking banned performanceenhancing drugs, Floyd Landis opted
for honesty yesterday and, in acknowledging a career built on lies,
tried to bring down with him as much of the world's cycling
establishment as possible in the process.
His biggest target was Lance Armstrong, who has been ducking and weaving
past allegations such as this for more than a decade and, in such
encounters, invariably manages to land the last punch. Already, albeit
at this early stage, it would seem that Landis has swung and missed.
Landis, 34, has claimed that Armstrong was his partner in a regime of
illegal doping when they were with the US Postal team together and he
names a number of other American riders who were allegedly part of the
same set-up. He then goes up the power chain and claims that Armstrong.s
long-term coach, Johan Bruyneel, guided him on the path to drug-taking
and he implicates the International Cycling Union (UCI), the sport's
world governing body, in being party to overlooking such illegal
Much of the above has been written, discussed or gossiped about before.

it and in the detail of his allegations.
