Next round for Landis apparently to kick off today

FloydLandis.com | LANDIS' LAWYER TO SUBMIT FORMAL REQUEST RECOMMENDING DISMISSAL OF CASE AGAINST TOUR DE FRANCE CHAMPION

Floyd Landis(Breathless capital letters above from the source, at the FloydLandis.com weblog.)

We should get to see some details on the defense of Floyd Landis later today. Landis, who showed up at a criterium near his boyhood home on Saturday, posted on his weblog Friday that his legal team will ask USADA to dismiss doping allegations against the 2006 Tour winner.

Landis says his team has discovered “inconsistencies in the testing protoocol and methodology” that should lead to his case being thrown out.

I'm sure whatever breaks will be covered quickly at Trust But Verify.

I wasn't able to make the Doylestown, PA crit where Floyd Landis made a speacial guest appearance (same day as my club's century) but my spies tell me that he got a huge ovation and big cheers when race announcer Michael Aisner introduced him. He was autographing everything in sight and shaking hands and posing for pictures.

I think he's gotten a bum rap so far. I hope letting a lawyer handle his defense for him gets him a better deal.
