As the Tour de France gets under way, defrocked 2006 winner Floyd Landis has put forward fresh, detailed doping allegations against Lance Armstrong. But Armstrong has become as famous for deflecting scandal as for leading the peloton.
Doping allegations have dogged Lance Armstrong throughout his career, but the the seven-time Tour de France winner has deflected them all. The latest accusations are from a disgraced former teammate, Floyd Landis.
American cyclist Floyd Landis comes clean about use of banned drugs to clear his conscience. Landis lost his 2006 Tour de France title on doping charges and spent $2 million in vain to clear his name. He says other cyclists doped too, including Lance Armstrong.
