Landis & Pereiro
Posted by Gordon Smith

Last week we did a poll on Floyd Landis, and our readers were split: 51% believed him, and 49% did not. Did today's test results change opinions? When the topic arose at a dinner party tonight, people were mostly cynical.

The big question has been: why was Landis' testosterone elevated on one stage but not on the stages before or after? One of the guests at the dinner party, a hospital administrator, told us that doctors in his hospital pointed to "Mexican beans." Hmm.

In any event, it looks like the Tour de France will go to Oscar Pereiro. If you were following the race, you might remember that Oscar was almost a half hour behind the leaders before he broke away on Stage 13 and earned the yellow jersey. NYT has a nice retrospective on Pereiro's improbable Tour victory.
