It's time, gentle reader, for my final TdF post of this year. After Floyd Landis's amazing stage win and rebound into third place on Stage 17, his third-place finish in the time trial of Stage 19 was good enough to push him into the overall lead. As expected, there were no changes to the overall standings in today's final stage, so Landis took the overall win.

    I'm sure you've heard about that. These guys will never be clean.

    "I thought waiting to hear back about Floyd's "B" sample would give me a different perspective or time to change the way I thought about it, but it really didn't. I've been going around in the peloton and talking to quite a few of the riders of higher standing about their take on the whole situation. And obviously, disappointment is a big feeling in the peloton. It hurts each and every single one of us that something like this happened."
