Liggett on Landis: “I believe he will win his appeal” | Voice Of The Tour De France Supports Floyd Landis

Appearing in Colorado, voice of the Tour (in English) Phil Liggett said Monday he thinks Floyd Landis will be cleared of the doping charges he faces.

Liggett said he had spoken with Landis during the Tour of California:

“I ran into Floyd and we had a very quiet one-on-one around the dinner table … He’s so angry. During the week he announced his defense policies. There have been mistakes made on the testing and I believe he will win his appeal.”

Liggett was appearing at an expansion of Wheat Ridge Cyclery, co-owned by former 7-11 pro rider Ron Kiefel.

Landis, of course, faces disciplinary hearings after a urine sample from last year’s Tour came back with an elevated epitestosterone-to-testosterone ratio. For mindboggling detail on what’s going on in the case, check in with Trust But Verify.
