Floyd Landis Accuses Lance Armstrong of Using Steroids: It appears that the controversy surrounding 7-time Tour de France champion, Lance Armstrong and his alleged performance enhancing drug use will not cease anytime soon. According to dishonored American cyclist, Floyd Landis — who admitted to has admitted to regular use of PEDs — Armstrong is guilty of doping, said the Wall Street Journal this Thursday morning.
Stripped of his 2006 Tour de France title for his use of PEDs, Landis finally came clean about cheating in a series of emails sent to cycling officials and sponsors, which is something he had denied profusely in the past. According to this report, Landis admits in the emails that he started using PEDs in 2002, which was his first year racing for the United States Postal Service team led by Armstrong. But Landis didn’t stop there.
The disgraces cyclist also accuses American riders Levi Leipheimer and Dave Zabriskie as well as a direct doping involvement by Armstrong's longtime coach, Johan Bruyneel. “I want to clear my conscience,” Landis said in a recent interview with ESPN. “I don't want to be part of the problem any more. If I don't say something now then it's pointless to ever say it.”
But as one can expect, not everyone is buying into Landis’ claims, as his credibility is a bit shaky at this point. “What's his agenda?” UCI president Pat McQuaid said. “The guys is seeking revenge. It's sad, it's sad for cycling. It's obvious he does hold a grudge.
“He already made those accusations in the past. Armstrong has been accused many times in the past but nothing has been proved against him. And in this case, I have to question the guy's credibility. There is no proof of what he says. We are speaking about a guy who has been condemned for doping before a court.”
