500 give Floyd Landis a standing ovation at Seattle bookstore

Seattle area cycling fans gave a warm welcome Thursday to Floyd Landis at perhaps his best appearance so far on a cross-country book tour to promote “Positively False: The Real Story of How I Won the Tour de France.”

“You guys in Seattle got 'em all beat. Even better than Lancaster, Pennsylvania,” Landis told me as he neared the end of a 1-1/2 hour session signing books (and shirts, and posters, and a bike).

Maybe he was just playing to the locals, but he did fill a room adjacent to Third Place Books in Lake Forest Park with some 500 cycling fans, many fresh off their bikes, who gave him a standing ovation when he entered. ……

Landis sighting: signing in Seattle on Thursday

Floyd Landis will be visiting the Seattle area this Thursday to sign copies of his book, “Positively False: The Real Story of How I Won the Tour de France.”

Floyd Landis will hit the road for “Positively False” book tour


If you've already seen and heard enough of Floyd Landis, well, you ain't seen nothin' yet.

Landis' book, “Positively False: The Real Story of How I Won the Tour de France,” comes out June 26 and he'll immediately start a book-signing tour that will take him to bookstores across the country.

I'd expect Landis, and maybe co-author Lauren Mooney of Bicycling magazine, to appear on radio and TV talk shows at the same time.

Eating too many doughnuts lately was Floyd Landis' excuse for an 8th place finish in the hill-climbing competition at the Teva Mountain Games in Vail.

Waiting to hear the results of a three-judge arbitration panel that could ban him from professional cycling for two years, Landis visited the extreme games event to meet and greet the public.

Landis, under oath, denies doping

Floyd Landis finally got to the witness stand on Saturday to testify — I assume to no one's surprise — that he did not take performance-enhancing agents to win the 2006 Tour de France.

The surprise is that Landis was present, but unaware, when his business manager made that infamous call to Greg LeMond threatening to make public the story that LeMond had been sexually abused as a child.

Apparently they were sitting apart at dinner on Wednesday night, and Landis saw Will Geoghegan make a short phone call. Soon thereafter he got a call back but didn't answer it. Later, Geoghegan appears shaken up and tells Landis what he did. …

Landis drug hearing; LeMond charges witness intimidation

Floyd Landis wanted a full and open hearing to defend the accusations that he doped during the Tour de France so the public could judge the veracity of the evidence against him.

What viewers got on Thursday was a tawdry peep show that had little relevance to the accusations, but revealed much about the depths that each side would sink to gain an advantage.

It happened when three-time Tour de France winner Greg LeMond was called to testify about a phone call he'd had with Landis soon after the doping allegations surfaced last year. …
