Floyd Landis Finally Admits to Doping and Accuses Lance Armstrong.

After four years of denying his positive test for synthetic testosterone following the 2006 Tour de France Floyd Landis came clean with yesterday and admitted to using performance enhancing drugs for most of his career.  During his years riding with the U.S. Postal Service and Phonak teams he tried everything from testosterone, human growth hormone, red blood cell booster erythropoietin, blood transfusions, female hormones and insulin.  Landis also confirmed several emails he sent to cycling and anti-doping officials over the last few weeks accusing dozens of other athletes including Lance Armstrong.  The World Anti-Doping Agency will open an investigation into these allegations but the International Cycling Union said these allegations were "scandalous and mischievous."
