August 11, 2007 (Leadville, Colorado) — Floyd Landis finished second today at the Leadville 100 Classic with his right leg wrapped in gauze following a crash earlier in the race reports AP. The 100-mile mountain bike race was won by five-time winner Dave Wiens with a time of 6:58.47 and Landis came in at 7:30. About 1,000 cyclists took part and originally Lance Armstrong was also to compete with Landis and Armstrong slated to face off against each other, but this did not materialize.
Landis, tainted winner of the 2006 TdF, tested positive for synthetic testosterone and his title has since been in dispute. He faced a hearing before the USADA in May of this year and a decision is expected soon. Unconfirmed reports claim that Landis has lost his case and disciplinary action is imminent – stay tuned for more on the Landis case.
