Might Floyd Landis join Lance Armstrong's new Team RadioShack?
"I wouldn't rule anything out," Armstrong said.  (Bloomberg)
Landis rode with Armstrong at USPS from 2002-2004.  He won the
2006 Tour de France but was stripped of the title after failing anti-doping tests.

Eneco Tour LIVE - Stage 7

Tyler Farrar:  This season and five years ago

Flashback: 2008 Paris-Roubaix:  American Tyler Farrar (Slipstream-Chipotle) before the "Hell of the North".
We should see a lot of Farrar in the spring classics for years to come.  2009 has been a breakout season for Farrar.

2009 Tirreno-Adriatico, Stage 3:  In March, Farrar (Garmin-Slipstream) earned what at the time was the biggest win of his career, beating Mark Cavendish, Enrico Rossi, Tom Boonen, Robbie McEwen, Stuart O'Grady, Robert Hunter, Luca Paolini, Thor Hushovd and Alessandro Petacchi.

2009 Vattenfall Cyclassics:  In Hamburg earlier this month Farrar gets another career best.

Flashback: 2004 Grand Prix des Nations:  Farrar, 20, riding for Team U.S.A., signs in along the Seine river in Elbeuf-sur-Seine, before riding in the U23 time trial (27km).  Farrar was part of an exciting class of young U.S. riders that included Saul Raisin whose promising pro career was ended by a serious injury less than two years later.

2004 Grand Prix des Nations:  Farrar in action.  This was the last edition of the GP des Nations with the introduction of the ProTour the following year.

2004 Grand Prix des Nations:  Farrar would cross the line 3 seconds after the time shown at left above.
The time at upper right is the then best time of Peter Mazur (Polish National Team).
Only Dominique Cornu (Belgian National Team) would do better.  Farrar finished a fine 5th.
