"I am saddened by today's decision. I am looking into my legal options and deciding on the best way to proceed."
—Floyd Landis. Landis lost his final chance to retain his 2006 Tour de France title yesterday. A three-person panel at the Court of Arbitration for Sport upheld a previous panel's decision, ruling his positive doping test during the Tour two years ago was, indeed, valid. Landis also must pay $100,000 toward the legal fees of the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency.
