More On Floyd weighs in on the whole Floyd Landis clusterf-ck:

I raced against Floyd in 1999 and 2000 when he first switched from mountain bike to road racing, and I can assure you he was ripping guy’s legs off from the beginning. He caused the power house team at the time, Mercury, so much grief that spring they decided to hire him rather than fight him. A year later, in only his second season of road racing, he placed 4th in the Tour de L’Avenir –the amateur Tour de France. Success in road racing is nothing new for Floyd and it’s no surprise to see him winning the Tour.

It's a good article.

One of's founders is local Cat 1 racer Skiles Keith, who periodically races with American pros and is quite a formidable member of Louisville's premier top amateur racing team, Texas Roadhouse. Be sure to check out the video interviews while you're there.
