Floyd Landis Admits To Doping, Accuses Lance Armstrong As Well

It's been years since anyone was really concerned about whether or not Floyd Landis was actually guilty of doping in the Tour de France.  He's claimed innocence up and down in spite of the evidence and claims to the contrary.  Now that no one seems to be worried anymore, Landis is finally coming clean.  However he's decided that if he's going down, he's taking the sport's biggest icon down with him.

Floyd Landis, the American cyclist whose 2006 Tour De France victory was nullified after a positive doping test, has sent a series of emails to cycling officials and sponsors admitting to, and detailing, his systematic use of performance enhancing drugs during his career. The emails also claim that other riders and cycling officials allegedly participated in doping, including seven-time Tour de France winner Lance Armstrong.

Armstrong has not commented on the claims yet, he's still to busy dealing with the incompetent folks over at Versus.  Landis also hasn't provided any independent confirmation of his claims. Possibly the most damning part is that Landis accuses Armstrong's longtime coach Johan Bruyneel as being the person who introduced him to PEDs and steroids.

More to come. Keep an eye on Podium Cafe for news and updates.
