American Dominance Continues at Tour De France

Floyd LandisOnce Lance Armstrong retired it was pretty much a given that the American reign at the Tour De France would end. Floyd Landis obviously didn’t agree with this notion and yesterday extended the American dominance at the Tour to eight years. Landis has an arthritic hip that will be replaced very soon yet he won the grueling race based on his undying determination. Landis was pretty much left for dead earlier in the week when he fell roughly eight minutes behind after Stage 16 in the Alps. Then the very next day Landis miraculously went out and won Stage 17 and closed the deficit to just thirty seconds. The rest is history and Floyd Landis deserves major credit for a jobe well done.
