The former manager of the defunct Phonak team, John Lelangue, expressed his frustrations regarding the Floyd Landis affair today, saying he felt "betrayed" by the American who tested positive for testosterone in last year's Tour of France, adding "I have endured an enormous deception, a true human treason on the part of Landis."

Lelangue, who now works a commentator for Radio télévision belge de la Communauté française (RTBF) expressed his desire to return to the peloton, but indicated he would wait a year or more. Lelangue told Sporza, "In 2007 I am a commentator on the RTBF, and keep in touch with the [cycling] environment this way. I can work a day or hundred. But I will not hide that it is still my ambition to return to the peloton. And that does not need be per se as a manager of a team."
