Eddy Merckx has been called as a witness in the Floyd Landis hearing, but has no intention of going. "What am I supposed to do there in America? I have no knowledge of this whole thing," he said, according to the Belgian newspaper Het Nieuwsblad. "I found it strange that they asked me to be a witness."
"I have nothing at all to do with this affair," the Belgian said, "so I will let it pass me by."
