    Exclamation Tour De France Winner Floyd Landis Fails Doping Test

    Floyd Landis' stunning Tour de France victory just four days earlier was thrown into question Thursday when his team said he tested positive for high levels of testosterone during the race.

    The Phonak team suspended Landis, pending results of the backup "B" sample of his drug test. If Landis is found guilty of doping, he could be stripped of the Tour title, and Spain's Oscar Pereiro would become champion.

    It wasn't immediately known when the backup sample will be tested.

    Efforts to reach Landis were not immediately successful. But Arlene Landis said her son called Thursday from Europe and told her he had not done anything wrong.

    "He said, 'There's no way,'" she said in an interview with The Associated Press at her home in Farmersville, Pa. "I really believe him. I don't think he did anything wrong."

    There is a Tour De France thread in the Jury Room where Buzz has posted this unfortunate news. I surely hope that Floyd is cleared. I want to believe that he did nothing wrong. I guess that we will have to wait and see what the results of the tests are on his backup sample.

    That thread should be moved here, as this is where sports news goes. Maybe a Mod can do it?

    Seriously, do the French go about and spike the American urine samples every time someone from the United States wins?

    Landis himself has probably seen all of the crap that Lance has gone through. Do you think he would actually be stupid enough to dope for the biggest race of the year, when they would be extremely tight with their drug testing?

    I beg to differ with you DK. I started the Tour de France thread and put it in the Jury Room as it was going to last a month; it wasn't just a one day event. I sincerely believe that the Jury Room was the right place for it, and I don't want it moved. The Up to the Minute place isn't necessarily where sports automatically goes. For me, it depends on what the subject is, and the time period it is going to last.

    This forum's header says "news, sports, weather and entertainment" so I am going by that. A hurricane thread in the JR was moved here for the exact same reason a few weeks ago by Tybee, iirc. I don't really care one way or another, lol.

    Update from FOX

    Monday, July 31, 2006

    MADRID, Spain **Tour de France champion Floyd Landis officially requested the testing of his backup urine sample Monday in an effort to clear his name of doping allegations.

    ~snip~

    Buxeda said he's not sure when the "B" test will be carried out at the Paris doping laboratory, though it could be sometime this week.

    If his the B test is negative, Landis would be cleared. If it's positive, the 30-year-old American would face formal doping charges and could be stripped of his Tour victory and banned for two years.

    i agree with this statement, that the thread belongs in the jury room.

    that is where we had the "dancing with stars" and American Idol thread if i am not mistaken, and i look at the Tour de France as the same type of event.

    Paper: Landis had synthetic testosterone

    NEW YORK - Tests show that some of the testosterone in Floyd Landis' system at the Tour de France was synthetic and not naturally produced by his body as he claimed, according to a newspaper report.
