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.

His favourite ride is his ‘commute’ - which he does most days inc weekends and he’s been cycle-commuting since 1994. His favourite bikes are titanium and have disc brakes.
