"Landis says" (quotes below from TPX-cited article)
Is he becoming a 'respected authority' now, just like nemesis Greg Lemond?
So what does Floyd say?
"I think that the risk of taking clenbuterol is higher now than it was earlier, when there weren't any training controls," Landis said.
Seems to mean that one 'took things'(during some later years, pre-2006), with knowledge that teams were beginning 'internal analyses'('training controls')...
Landis said Monday that cycling's governing body "protects some people and not others."
Well, I can vouch for part of that; in discussing this with Pat McQuaid at lunch in Madrid during the World Anti-Doping Conference 2007, implications were voiced, that basically impugned Landis (actually: his Team) as not being the type of actions that the UCI could defend.
