February 23, 2009 – Following the seventh stage of the Amgen Tour of California, Floyd Landis met briefly with the media in a press conference held in a room packed with reporters and journalists. Bill Witz of the New York Times wrote this story of Landis’ uncertain return to bike racing, and the delight he has taken in being back in the pro peloton.
On his immediate impressions about racing in this year’s Tour of California, Landis quipped:
“I missed bicycle racing. I spent a large part of my life doing it. For the last few years, I’ve been gone. It feels good to be back. I don’t know what the long-term goals are. It gets to a point where goals are very shortsighted. Like right now, I’m going to go find a place to lie down.”
