Committee tells conference organiser to drop drug cheat Floyd Landis

Page 8 - Get up to date with the latest news, scores & standings from the Cycling News Community.
The UCI leader did not object to Landis speaking at a two-day conference staged by Deakin University. The rider, who was stripped of his 2006 Tour victory for doping and later banned, is scheduled to join an expert panel of lawyers, scientists and academics.

However, McQuaid questioned Landis for seeking to create a "hullabaloo" of publicity.

"My only problem is with his modus operandi. I am aware that there are other very high profile athletes who have also been sanctioned for major doping offenses that are ... assisting authorities in the fight against doping," McQuaid said.

"They choose to do it, to my mind, the correct way by working quietly without any hullabaloo."

McQuaid said Landis does not have accreditation to attend the world championship races which begin Wednesday and end with the elite men's road event on Sunday, Oct. 3.

Remember years ago when Lance raised the flag on dopers by sending a private e-mail to WADA and the ASO?

Lance did not raise a big stink. He let WADA follow up. Its THEIR job.

So, Landis will not say anything because Lance will disclose Floyds doping?

You haven't been following events recently, have you?

I am sorry we have to listen to LeMond and Floyd having tizzie fits.

Floyd will say things selectivly he is really being careful about what he does say. I really do not know why.

I respect Floyds intelligence.

(sarcasm alert)

And what an admirable job they seem to have done at the time!

Now we know that the UCI really is diligent, because they saw what happened with that Lance communication, and they decided to leak the Landis email to force things into the open. Then they get to blame Landis for sending it. Brilliant!!!

(end sarcasm)

So much for providing a "soapbox", from the little information we have so far about the conference, Landis contributed to the discussion on a range of issues involving doping and individual welfare etc.

The organising commitee has egg on its face for bowing so easily to the forces of omerta.

Funny that the stock photos used in the CN story about Landis are all pre Lance/TOC/extortion episode. Most of the people and organizations included in the happy photo scenes wish Landis evaporated. Was it really worthy of news inches to print that Floyd had some supporters? I guess..the tone of the Herald Sun reporter is that of surprise that people are still supporting the failure they describe as a disgraced liar.

Even the Herald Scum wrote a nice article to Landis:

Time to step up Rupert!


Bet Lance has never been to the aussie rules grand final!

Conference organisers are also keen to secure him a ticket for Saturday’s replay of the Australian Rules Football Grand Final – the equivalent of the FA Cup Final – at the Melbourne Cricket Ground between Collingwood and St Kilda, and promise that “he would be a riot for a guest.” We have no doubt of that.

THAT IS REFRESHING TO HEAR that the kids in the races down under are cleaning it up. I am not a mindless sheep. I never used PEDs and I do not believe in them.

I am pretty sure pro cyclists have always used them. Even before LeMond was born. I have one question. 1 Is that Aussie bloke who won the tour of california this clean these days? 2Was he clean during his days with T-Mobile.

3Will he be speaking at Geelong. 4Is he spoken about at your local amatuer road races? 5Is he a cycling hero in your land?

Interesting definitions of ONE question..... :D I have numbered it for clarity.

1. No idea but probably not
2. Almost certainly not
3. Nope - but given the above and given the fact he has continued to dodge the topic, why exactly would he turn up there and why would anyone care what he had to say? Hardly a useful comparison to Landis who provided a large pile of information to the UCI etc (and did NOT do so publicly)
4. Nope, never
5. Nope (unless you count a certain broadcaster.)

Where you live 100% of parents think cycling is very dirty & drug filled?

Yikes.

Thank you Greg and Floyd....

I wonder how the parents of Pro cyclists feel about Greg and Floyd.

That is an APALLING piece of trolling there Polish. Utterly pathetic. You shoud be embarrassed to have your name associated with it.

ABC Lateline, the most respectable nightly current affairs program in the country did a report (4 minutes) on Landis and the conference.

http://www.abc.net.au/reslib/201009/r647026_4521802.asx

Not sure if it's territory restricted or not.

It shows Sassi talking a lot of sense about cleaning up management being the only way to a cleaner sport.

landis comports himself pretty well here as usual. in fact, he's so relaxed and hitting so many of the right notes i'd say he's been coached up very well on how to handle these situations. who's idea was it to label him a bitter deranged drunk with an axe to grind? bet they wish they had a "do over" on that one. ;)

We like our credibility.

I kinda doubt he's had much coaching, that probably not being within his current budget, and he sure didn't look coached for most of 2006-2009. So I'd say he's legitimately relaxed and comfortable with where he is now. Not that being off the UCI blacklist and having a ride for next year wouldn't be a bonus.

I wonder if he has a cause of action against the UCI for blacklisting him?

I spoke with a young man Saturday some 20 year old american riding pro in yuropeI asked him a few questions. he said epo can be found in folicle test.,injecting epo the night before a hard race you will flush out all traces and will show clean if tested after a race. also his team is clean he is sure of it.epo is used for recovery. the peloton is pretty much cleaned up these days. (I think that is true except for the big money teams which are as dirty as ever.) I think he thought he was telling the truth and was very stupid, or thought he was telling the truth and was very naive(like a young LeMond)

Two hour and ten minute audio from the conference. Here's their description:

We're lucky enough to have the audio of a letter from an anonymous cyclist competing in the World Championships talking about doping & the UCI, as well as the full audio of the panels discussion.

Things get pretty fiery!!

http://www.cyclingtribe.com/blog/post/show/id/98-New-Pathways-Conference-Coverage

Just listening to the very lengthy rider letter. It's extremely anti-UCI, and says the pro riders don't need it. Some pretty interesting stuff from what was described as a very successful (or well-known?) rider.

(site is sometimes geo blocked, sometimes not)

you have made my day..thanks for posting this. The got exactly what they paid for a bumbling idiot. In true landis form he even showed up under dressed. I hope they use a quote or 2 from him. Saying it is useless and ineffective to get a few riders at a time and that current methodology is not going to work..then out of the other side of his mouth he gives up 10 names. So which does he want institutional overhaul or pinpoint payback..it is a shame that we have to let him back in the US..he would be such a good awards presenter on the Deadly's
