When they supposedly found Floyd positive their lab work was worse than untrained monkeys, we did better lab work in my junior high school science classes compared to the crap they railroaded Landis with.
During the testing of his B sample Floyd's expert witness, who helped design the Agilent testing machine, had to show the lab employees that the damn machine wasn't even set up correctly and still had shipping parts bolted to it. If I recall correctly (and if I don't someone will correct me I'm sure) the AFLD lab had a "success" rate about 40% higher than all the other WADA accredited labs at reporting testosterone positives. Logically all the other labs should be reporting the same general percentage of positives but no one seemed to want to look into that minor detail even after the lab was shown to be doing the testing with machine installed incorrectly but they railroaded Floyd just because they could knowing full well the system is stacked against the athletes. I'm sure the fact he was an American didn't help his cause with the French either.
Let's not forget that AFLD conveniently leaked details to the Le Quipe newspaper before some athletes, Floyd included, were even notified of their alleged positives. Oh and let's not forget the lab clearly labeled the samples of some French riders during last years Tour which is a major violation of the chain of custody.
So good riddance to AFLD if it's true and let's just go ahead and demolish the building for good measure, I'll be happy to swing the sledgehammer.
Here's a link to an outstanding blog about AFLD and the WADA system in general.
Tell how the machine was screwed up for the IRMS test?
Good thing CAS, and most rational people, do not agree with your conspiracy theories.
