    Floyd Landis' autobiography: to be published just before the Tour de France 2007Last week Floyd Landis announced on his blog that Simon Spotlight Entertainment (SSE) will publish his autobiography at the end of June (on the 26th), that is just before the start of the Tour de France on July 7th, 2007.

    The book, which title will be Positively False, will describe Landis' life from his birth in a small town in the state Pennsylvania up to his presumed drugs use which has put a stain on his Tour vitory in 2006. Between these two moments of his life, the book will also describe the period in which he finished three Tours with Lance Armstrong as the winner and it will also contain some negative stories around the different bodies which are responsible for Floyd being accused of drug use and which according to him have unfairly tainted his career.

    Landis says that Positively False will also deliver compelling evidence to prove his innocence and one of the goals of the book is to clear his name and blacken the one of the 'unchecked governing bodies of cycling and the Olympic Games that place the bureaucratic ambitions of a few over the integrity of sport as a whole' ...

    Floyd Landis says he's happy with the opportunity SSE offers him to tell his own story completely instead of hearing it in the media as 'my life condensed into sound-bites and two-minute interviews'.

    The book, that counts 256 pages and is written by Floyd Landis and Loren Mooney is already available for pre-order at Amazon.com ...
