Who's a victim of doping in Cycling? The FBI says... me!
Yes, I was there when Floyd Landis pulled off the Champ Elysees after "winning" the Tour de France in 2006. And I later supported his efforts to prove the tests false. I changed my mind about 9 months later. --Mike--
The real victims of doping in sports. Who are they? Apparently, me!
Got a letter in the mail today from the FBI, yeah, the organization Mulder & Scully work for. They say that I've been identified as a victim of a possible crime. They don't say what the crime was, probably because it's not politically-correct to tell people they're stupid. But yes, I did indeed contribute to the Floyd Fairness Fund. I was duped. By a guy who wears baseball caps backward (and I swear, I've never even watched a NASCAR race on TV!).
For some context, here's a link to the web page describing my 2006 Tour de France experience, including the day Floyd flew up the mountain powered by testosterone. And later, when it was revealed Floyd failed a doping control, I wrote this. I was pretty naïve at the time!
07/28/06- CATCHING A DOLPHIN IN A TUNA NET? I was there, I saw both Floyd's spectacular failure and next-day's resurrection to claim victory in one of the world's greatest sporting events.
May 18, 2007, was the day I stopped believing in Floyd Landis. The day Floyd's friend made a call to Greg LeMond, claiming to be an uncle who had abused him. The phone call was made in Floyd's presence. Floyd lost every last bit of credibility with me on that day. That was the day I knew Floyd had cheated. I didn't yet know that everybody cheated. That would take a few more years.
