Floyd Landis may well beat the doping investigation because the French may of mishandled his urine samples.
According to a report in the L.A. Times, the anti-doping case against Tour de France champion Floyd Landis could be in jeopardy after multiple errors by the French laboratory that produced the incriminating results.
In one of a number of errors, the lab may have allowed improper access to the cyclistâ€™s urine samples. According to the report, two technicians were involved in both the original urine analysis and a second, validating test. This is prohibited by International lab standards to ensure accuracy.
It is not yet clear whether the techniciansâ€™ conduct will disqualify the findings. A similar error by the same lab in 2005 resulted in the dismissal of doping chargers against Spanish cyclist Inigo Landaluze in December.
