Floyd Landis Admits Drug Use, Accuses Lance Armstrong of Doping
The paper says Landis, who was stripped of his 2006 Tour de France title for doping, sent a series of e-mails to cycling officials and sponsors detailing his use of banned drugs.
Landis also admitted to doping in an interview with ESPN.com.
"I don't feel guilty at all about having doped," Landis told ESPN.com. "I did what I did because that's what we [cyclists] did and it was a choice I had to make after 10 years or 12 years of hard work to get there; and that was a decision I had to make to make the next step. My choices were, do it and see if I can win, or don't do it and I tell people I just don't want to do that, and I decided to do it."
Pat McQuaid, the head of cycling's world governing body UCI, questions Landis' credibility. McQuaid tells The Associated Press that Landis is "seeking revenge" and holds a "grudge" against Armstrong and others.
McQuaid says Armstrong has been accused of doping many times but nothing has ever been proven.
