Floyd Landis responded to the Landaluze decision announced today and empathised with the acquitted rider. Landis said the acquittal "strengthens my contention that the tests conducted on my sample were handled in an incompetent fashion and analysed on the basis of flawed 'science'". The Châtenay-Malabry laboratodry was the same lab that analysed Landis' samples which tested positive from Stage 17 of the Tour de France.

"Going through what I am now," said Landis, "I feel personally for Landaluze and hope that everyone recognizes that it has taken him 18 difficult months to clear his name from what was revealed to be a grievous error at the LNDD."
