Say it ain’t so, Floyd!

Written by Mike. No comments Posted in: Cycling

The latest news from France is that recently crowned TdF champ Floyd Landis’ blood tests after last Thursday’s Stage 17 reflected an adverse finding related to testosterone.  His B sample will be tested within the next week or so to confirm this finding.  Floyd has denied taking testosterone and asked his B sample be tested. From what I […]

For many years (at least since I started cycling), Preston road and SR1461 in Prosper have been great roads to ride a bicycle on.  I can remember riding from my house in Richardson south on Greenville to Walnut Hill then west to Preston then north 30 miles up the 2 lane road thru Frisco all […]

There were many who thought the Tour would only be a shadow of itself with the DQ of Ullrich, Basso, Mancebo, Vino, etc.  I disagree.  I think it has made for a wide-open event with significantly more riders having opportunities for glory. There is talk of an All-American podium with George, Levi and Floyd (from more than […]
