I'm wondering if the tape recordings by Greg Lemond will be used in this investigation. You can bet that they have already listened to them.

Anyone think that Greg Lemond invited Floyd Landis to his home for Thanksgiving?

Do you think that they'll celebrate Christmas together?

Or maybe Greg will invite Floyd for a hunting trip?

Cheers Everyone

It is so sad MOEP. What these so called hero's of cycling have done to ridicule our sport. Sadly, a nobel sport, only for amateurs. Regards to you and yours. Raymond

Hi Raymond. Hope all is well with you and your family.

Yes, it is sad as there seems to be no ending to this saga.

Cheers

Qoute "I am surprised that the teams do not do "sample splits". i.e. part of the riders sample goes to the primary testing lab the other portion goes to a different accredited lab. Another option is to run a "duplicate". The sample is split and the duplicate is run at the same lab but is unknown to the tester as to its' source. Ideally the duplicate should produce the same result as the other portion of the sample and supports the labs analysis and quality control. The teams may do this but I haven't heard any mentuion of it yet. It costs more but it is a whole bunch less than Floyd and Phonak are spending right now defending the allegations."

I found this statement posted by another poster and found it intriguing since it was written back in August 2006.

That was when LNDD was the only lab doing drug testing at the time. And then later on the lab in Los Angeles tried testing the Floyd Landis samples as well, yet they didn't come up with the same test results as the LNDD did.

As all of that was brought out during and within the Floyd Landis case, it was that information that forced the French authorities along with WADA in improving their process involved with testing for illegal drugs in sports.

It also helped bring about the Blood Passport program within the UCI and it also pushed all of the cycling teams to begin their own in-house testing programs as well.
