Floyd Landis' former business manager Will Geoghegan, relieved of his duties following the threatening phone call he made to Greg Lemond, is entering a rehabilitation program it was announced Monday. Geoghegan's role will be taken over in an interim capacity by Dr Brent Kay who has previously served as a personal physician to Landis.
In an email letter sent to Landis' publicity loop, Kay wrote that Geoghegan is in a "distraught state" following the fallout from his phone call to Lemond last Tuesday evening, which Geoghegan later said was the result of alcohol consumption. "While Floyd and the entire team find Will's actions regrettable and abhorrent, he is still a friend and we wish him the best in his recovery," wrote Kay, who is executive director of the OUCH Sports Medical Center.
"It is my hope that we can make a seamless transition and continue to work together in our mutual best interests. I know that Floyd is eager to get through the last days of his hearing and to turn his focus toward his business responsibilities," continued Kay.
"He is very excited about our anticipated victory and is anxious to support the very few that have supported him."
