Landis book expected before '07 Tour

IHT.com | Tour de France winner to publish book

Associated Press reports that 2006 Tour de France winner Floyd Landis will publish a book before the Tour kicks off this July.

Landis, facing possible disqualification for a high testosterone-to-epitestosterone ratio, is expected to publish Positively False: The Real Story of How I Won the Tour de France in late June, addressing his childhood as a Mennonite, his racing career, and his efforts to clear his name and return to racing.

Last week, Landis agreed not to race in France this year, and he faces a May hearing in front of the US Anti-Doping Agency and June proceedings from AFLD, the French equivalent. He's also 4.5 months into recovery from hip replacement surgery.

The book's available for preorder at Amazon; linked at right.
