Apparently this made the ESPN rounds while I was on the golf course Monday, so I apologize for not getting it to you sooner (it was a freakin’ struggle on the links yesterday by the way, but I’m probably back at it as you read this), but Floyd Landis has lost his 2006 Tour de France title yet again — this time with the ultimate sport governing body presiding.
The Court of Arbitration for Sport upheld a previous decision that Landis’ positive test for some illegal substance a couple years ago was legit, leaving Landis at or near the end of his legal maneuvering.
This was, apparently, Landis’ last opportunity to clear his not-so-good name, though the story says he has 30 days to appeal to the Swiss Federal Court. So, I don’t know what that really means.
Let’s sum it up: Floyd Landis is a cheater and a bad, bad man who wasted his money with all this legal mumbo jumbo.
