Floyd Landis Case Information Now Online

2006 Tour de France winner, Floyd Landis, has made public science-based case documents to support his innocence in the alleged non-negative doping test of July 20, 2006.

2006 Tour de France winner, Floyd Landis, has made public science-based case documents to support his innocence in the alleged non-negative doping test of July 20, 2006.

The following documents are available for download from http://www.box.net:

  • Attorney Howard Jacobs? motion for dismissal, submitted to the Anti-Doping Review Board (ADRB) on September 11, 2006

  • The complete World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) document package, inclusive of the testing information from Landis? ?A? and ?B? samples

  • A PowerPoint presentation created by Arnie Baker, M.D. with specific reference to:


    • The details of the carbon isotope ratio test (CIR), demonstrating that the CIR conducted on Landis? urine sample does not meet the WADA criteria for a positive doping test

    • Demonstration of an unacceptable variation in sample testing results

    • Errors in fundamental testing procedure and protocol

Landis received notice on September 18 that the ADRB has recommended that the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) move forward in the disciplinary process related to the cyclist?s alleged positive drug test. Howard Jacobs, attorney for Landis, has requested an open hearing by the American Arbitration Association to contest potential sanctions against the athlete.


Landis, who underwent the Birmingham Hip Resurfacing procedure on September 27, is fourteen days into a physical rehabilitation program and is steadily increasing strength and range of movement in his right hip. Doctors anticipate that he will be able to begin training in two weeks for the 2007 season, when he hopes to return to
France
to defend his Tour de France title.
