Floyd Landis signs McCabe, Tvetcov to Continental squad
December 12, 2018 (20:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Floyd Landis and Gord Fraser announced the first riders to be signed to their new Continental team, which will be named Floyd's Pro Cycling. The team will race primarily on the road, but with new equipment sponsor Van Dessel, they will compete in some gravel and mountain bike events. Landis is funding the team in part with the money from settling of his False Claims Act suit against Lance Armstrong and the US Postal Service team management and owners. Landis' Continental team will be registered in Canada and has acquired infrastructure from the defunct Silber Pro Cycling team. However, the registration ran into legal issues with the Canadian Government, so the team name had to be changed from Floyd's of Leadville Pro Cycling due to Canada's legalisation of cannabis.ADVERTISEMENT "Canada is sorting out the legalities surrounding CBD and athletics," Landis said in a press release. "My commitment to the team remains unchanged regardless of what it needs to be called. After years of litigation, I have no desire to enter another lengthy legal battle over the name." Fraser, who also directed Silber, has been leading the way with the signings. "We're going to focus on developing the best young cycling talent in Canada while expanding to recruit some of North America's most dynamic and proven riders," he said.

Thomas hits back at Wiggins comments on Armstrong
November 18, 2018 (23:45) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Geraint Thomas has hit back at Bradley Wiggins recent comments and emotively-driven support for Lance Armstrong, suggesting that his former Team Sky teammate is simply seeking publicity to help sell his latest book. Wiggins described Armstrong as the perfect Tour de France winner in his book called Icons, explaining that the Texan was perhaps the sort of winner that Tour de France founder Henri Desgrange had in mind 120 years ago when he created the race. Wiggins suggested that a Tour de France winner is on occasion, borderline sociopathic and always a very special, very driven human being. "I'm not saying he's an icon. He's iconic, for good and bad reasons now. I can't change the way it made me feel when I was 13. It changed my life," Wiggins explained in subsequent interviews revealing there was a "mutual respect in terms of what we've been through, racing against each other.ADVERTISEMENT Thomas " speaking in China while riding the Shanghai Tour de France criterium, made it clear to the AFP news agency that he did not agree with Wiggins. "Brad's got a book to sell," AFP reported Thomas as saying. "He does not have to worry about anything, either. He does not have to race his bike and deal with journalists. "He can just say what he wants and do any interview he wants so he can say something like that and get a load of publicity."

Lifetime ban reduced for former USPS doctor Del Moral
October 28, 2018 (15:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
The United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) wrapped up six years of wrangling over the anti-doping violations by Lance Armstrong's US Postal Service teams, reducing a lifetime ban for Spanish physician Dr Luis Garcia del Moral to just five years for his cooperation in a case against former manager Johan Bruyneel. USADA announced the reduction on Friday, which came as the result of an agreement with del Moral to give truthful testimony in an appeal by the World Anti-Doping Agency's (WADA) of USADA's decision to impose a 10-year ban on Bruyneel. The Court of Arbitration for Sport decided this week that the suspension was not sufficient, and issued a lifetime ban on the Belgian's involvement in sports, in part due to Del Moral's statements that Bruyneel was involved in doping riders.ADVERTISEMENT USADA CEO Travis Tygart hailed the decision, claiming that Bruyneel and his fellow litigants Dr.Pedro Celaya and trainer Jose Mart "pulled out every trick to avoid the truth" and "continued, even at the hearing and even in the face of overwhelming evidence to the contrary, to present a false narrative." The anti-doping case began in 2010 with emails sent by former team member Floyd Landis, who brought the team's doping activities to the attention of USA Cycling and the UCI. Lance Armstrong was the subject of a subsequent federal investigation into the allegations, but the inquiry was closed without indictment. USADA picked up where the feds left off, obtaining witness statements from numerous former riders, including anti-doping rule violation confessions from Michael Barry, Tom Danielson, Tyler Hamilton, George Hincapie, Levi Leipheimer, Christian Vande Velde and David Zabriskie - all of whom received lenient six-month, off-season suspensions for their cooperation in October, 2012.
