He said Landis and his team are the most by the book team out there and he would NEVER use them. Then he started talking about how many watts he used his last five hours of the tour and how it wasnt even as much as he used in practice or something. I kind of stopped paying attnetion.
Anyway I take what ESPN says with a grain of salt but that guy sure was convinced that Landis would not have used anything.
Theres a cycling analyst on ESPN?
When i first heard about this controversey(the first test, not this one) i thought it was just a conspiracy like with lance armstrong last year, but obviously it wasnt.
If you like conspiracy theories you can run with the idea that a French drug lab checking samples from an American who has just won France's most prestigious sporting event, and who has given the race its 11th American winner in the last 21 competitions, could have
screwed with the samples and may have added a bit of extra stuff.
It is possible.
Unfortunately, it is highly
unlikely. What is far more likely is that Landis, feeling the pressure of his team and wanting to win, cheated.
That's much, much more likely to be true.
