Floyd Landis Admits PED Use, Accuses Lance Armstrong

   
Floyd Landis, the 2006 Tour de France champion who had his title stripped after testing positive for synthetic testosterone, has finally admitted that he was a longtime user of performance-enhancing drugs. And in his confession he has accused other cyclists of cheating, including Lance Armstrong.

"I want to clear my conscience," Landis told ESPN.com. "I don't want to be part of the problem anymore. "With the benefit of hindsight and a somewhat different perspective, I made some misjudgments. And of course, I can sit here and say all day long, 'If I could do it again I'd do something different,' but I just don't have that choice.'"

Landis claims that doping was so rampant in cycling that he had no choice but to cheat if he wanted to participate in the sport at its highest levels.

"I don't feel guilty at all about having doped," Landis told ESPN.com. "I did what I did because that's what we [cyclists] did and it was a choice I had to make after 10 years or 12 years of hard work to get there; and that was a decision I had to make to make the next step. My choices were, do it and see if I can win, or don't do it and I tell people I just don't want to do that, and I decided to do it."

The New York Daily News is separately reporting that Landis has accused Armstrong of doping. Landis wrote letters to cycling officials describing how the U.S. Postal Service pro cycling team used performance-enhancing drugs when Landis was on it from 2002 to 2005. Armstrong was on the team during that time and won the Tour de France all four years. Armstrong has steadfastly denied ever using performance-enhancing drugs.
