Landis: Another excuse blown full of holes

Floyds been at full swing in the past week.

One of his arguments is that the UCI acted outside of the rules by leaking and naming him.

The truth is his own team named him. Check the full story here @ Guardian.co.uk

KARLSRUHE, Germany, Aug 9 (Reuters) - International Cycling Union (UCI) president Pat McQuaid rejected on Wednesday a claim by Tour de France winner Floyd Landis that his positive dope test had been a result of flawed procedures.

"We acted correctly," McQuaid said. "We informed the team, the rider and the federation that there had been an irregularity. Then we issued a press release saying that an unnamed rider had been found positive in the Tour.
"His team published his name, two days later. We make no excuses for our communique."
