Landis makes his case at Vuelta

VeloNews | Landis visits Vuelta, maintains innocence

Landis with Phonak busEmbattled Tour winner Floyd Landis took the charm offensive to Europe on Sunday, visiting the final stage of the Vuelta a España in Madrid.

Landis told journalists he is confident he will be exonerated after a high testosterone-epitestosterone ratio turned up in his drug test after an epic Stage 17 ride at the Tour de France.

“The Tour's doping tests are full of irregularities,” said Landis. “I'm innocent and I think my lawyers are going to be able to prove it, though they've had lots of difficulties gathering information.”

“I've come to talk with my lawyers and to also say goodbye to my teammates at Phonak because after the Tour I just didn't have time to do so,” he said.
