Landis Positive for unusual level of testosterone

Following the announcement of a positive test for “an unusual level of testosterone/epitestosterone,” the news has broken (AP, CNN, NPR) that it’s Landis. TDF blog is tracking the story and rounding up the coverage. At last word, Landis was no where to be found.

All I can say is, “say it isn’t so.” And note that a false-positive is the first step in the process. Next is confirming the positive is accurate and then endocrinological examinations to determine if it’s naturally occurring.


ESPN is reporting that every time a rider has disputed a testosterone case the cyclist has prevailed.

I can’t remember who that was, but I remember someone getting their test and ban overturned.
