Positively False: The Real Story of How I Won the Tour de France by Floyd Landis

THE SERIES OF EVENTS surrounding Floyd Landiss 2006 Tour de France was as improbable as anything in the history of sports: He showed up nine seconds late for the races opening prologue, donned the leaders yellow jersey twelve days later, and lost his lead only to regain it in remarkable fashion just before the Tours final stage into Paris. Winning the Tour should have been the culmination of a lifes dream, but a mere three days later, Landis was accused of using banned performance-enhancing drugs. Released by his team and threatened with the removal of his Tour title, Landis went from winning the most prestigious race of his career to being unfairly labeled as a cheater, a liar, and a doper. Positively False is at once a memoir and a powerful indictment of the unchecked governing bodies of cycling that have compromised the integrity of the sport as a whole. From leaving the Mennonite community of his youth in order to pursue his passion for cycling, to riding alongside Lance Armstrong for three years -- with whom he shared the same work ethic and competitive desire -- Floyd Landis details the highs and lows of his career with unabashed honesty. It is this same honesty with which he will clear his name once and for all, as he lays bare the inner workings of the cycling world -- a place where athletes are subject to the antiquated science, flawed interpretive protocols, and draconian legal processes of the anti-doping agencies -- and finally lays to rest the scandal that threatened to destroy everything hes worked so hard to achieve....
