BAKERSFIELD, Calif. -- Former Tour winner Floyd Landis confessed to doping on May 20. However, a bigger conspiracy has been discovered. It is said that the official sponsor, Amgen, of the Tour of California has seriously involved with this event. A very reliable source revealed that Amgen might have paid Landis more than $1million in order to make an explosion during the biggest cycling event in US.
“ It would be the most successful exposure.” An professional cycling observer told ESPN. “What else could it be?”
So far the accusation of Landis has spread to mostly all the top riders riding in California, but no riders currently riding for the Giro in Italy has been accused. Notwithstanding the International Cycling Union (UCI) has rejected all the accusations made by Landis, UCI President Pat McQuaid highly doubted Landis’ confession at this point in time.
