Landis never quits

The panel hearing doping accusations against Tour de France winner Floyd Landis has granted the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency's request to have a French lab test backup urine samples taken during the race, even though the "A" samples collected simultaneously tested negative for performance-enhancing drugs. USADA wants the testing done because results could possibly corroborate other evidence in the case -- even though under international anti-doping protocol, the results cannot be considered a positive test, according to an arbitrators' March 17 ruling obtained by on Wednesday. Landis said USADA's tactic is a legal red herring designed to prop up a shaky case and further sap his side of time and money.

I am not sure what the hell this means, but I do know that this is a story that never ends. Much like OJ's tireless hunt for the real killers.
