The first in an occasional series of things that might have seemed like a good idea at the time. This was one for those that really, really wanted to believe and it's sort of sad to see all of that faith so cruelly misplaced, it also gives an indication of why Landis eventually found the pyschological burden too much to carry.

That said, it's well worth clicking through to the Youtube version for the more recent comments – well it was when we first posted this anyway.

Any suggestions for future entries in the series will be gratefully received, so fire 'em in.


Plucked from the obscurity of his London commute back in the mid-Nineties to live in Bath and edit bike mags our man made the jump to the interweb back in 2006 as launch editor of a large cycling website somewhat confusingly named after a piece of navigational equipment. He came up with the idea for road.cc mainly to avoid being told what to do… Oh dear, issues there then. Tony tries to ride his bike every day and if he doesn't he gets grumpy, he likes carbon, but owns steel, and wants titanium. When not on his bike or eating cake Tony spends his time looking for new ways to annoy the road.cc team. He's remarkably good at it.

Seems he's saying that it was still a mistake - he wasn't using testosterone at the time - he was using human growth hormone!

I think he's just saying that so that he doesn't get sued for perjury, or whatever.
