    about your personal experience of Landis? Do you mind? Because I'm having a hard time with this.

      have been brief, but I found them to be so genuine and kind...like you would expect of a member of the Mennonite community.  Floyd did not act like most of the professional cyclists and seemed really very humble.  I've seen his mother and sisters following his races from town to town.

      Of all the egos in cycling, I have a hard time believing that the most humble, genuine guy out there is doping.

      That is only my gut instinct and based on pure speculation.

        He's a quiet intense guy, I have friends that know him very well and I cannot believe that he would knowingly dope.  Period.  

        However, if he was given supplements as part of a team "nutrition schedule", I can see it.  But he is unnaturally strong and his power output for the duration of that stage was within his normal output range.

        I hope that he is innocent.

        He who gives up liberty in exchange for security is deserving of neither

      UCLA scientists to be a part of the testing.  I'm sorry, but that is suspicious in and of itself.
