    Floyd Landis, a former teammate of the cyclist’s, just won more than $1 million in a legal case against Armstrong. Here are his thoughts on the suit, cycling, and his onetime rival.

    The Man Who Brought Down Lance Armstrong

    Quote
    “If you are a human in any way and not a psychopath, it’s painful,” he says. “My whole life was completely upside down, and I was not prepared for any of it.”

    Nice article, I'll be forever grateful to him. Still don't believe he rode clean in 2006 though.

    Oh, he didn't. Even by his own admission. There were blood bags and other PEDs, but he still insists that testosterone wasn't part of the mix (which is what he was busted for). In previous seasons, sure, but not in 2006. That's the one thing that he has stuck to since the debacle unfolded. And it seems to be what motivated him to fight the charges so vehemently, and what still leaves him puzzled. Was he set-up? Lab error? Who knows. We probably never will.

    Some solid work from Dan Benson here.

    Floyd Landis: Redemption and the pursuit of closure



    Quote
    "When Colorado legalised marijuana about four years ago, I'd been living in Denver and working at a compounding pharmacy as a lab tech, and I did some sales," he says, as the wizard knowingly nods on.

    Landis owns several properties within the town. There is the dispensary where his staff sell CBD-based products and legal marijuana, a showroom in which we're currently sitting, and two other buildings that he, his family, and close associates such as Wolfman occupy when they're splitting time between Colorado and New York. Outside of Leadville, Landis owns three outlets in the Portland area. His business isn't just legit – it's thriving.
    Quote
    Landis' entourage is small but tight-knit. Along with his partner and daughter, there is Wolfman, who has known Landis since his Phonak days, and who also goes by the name of Scott Thomson, as well as a few inner circle employees, and a man dressed as a wizard who is either a figment of my imagination or a friendly Leadville socialite, who is convinced that ghosts frequent his apartment. The air is thin up here, clearly.
