Easy money for Landis?

Former Phonak rider Floyd Landis has made it no secret that he's nearing bankruptcy, due to the ongoing court costs as he battles to defend his 2006 Tour de France victory, but now he has a chance to make some easy money to the tune of $100,000. The catch? The American will have to sit through a lie detector test.

The offer comes from the American multi millionaire Michael Robertson.

Landis has never accepted the now year-old offer.
