Floyd Landis has filed a whistle blower suit against Lance Armstrong, alleging Armstrong used illegal performance enhancing items while leading the US Postal Service team and winning Six Tour de France title in 1999-2004.
In a Whistleblower suit, a private citizen can sue on behalf of the US government with and allegation of Fraud. If successful, the private citizen gets 30% of the reward. The government can intervene and either take over the suit or quash it if it wishes.
The question I have is quite simple. Has Landis-whom crushed my heart when his 2006 TdeF title was stripped due to failing drug tests-had a legitimate change of heart in his approach to and acceptance of drug testing? Or is this another scam being pulled by a guy who got over $1,000,000.00 from fans to fund his defense fund as he tried to fight off doping charges…only to confess to doping?
Time will tell…
