Floyd Landis is now soliciting donations to help him in his defense against doping charges, at the website www.floydfairnessfund.org. The fund, which is organised by Landis' press advisor, Michael Hensen, says that it's three-pronged mission is to "To support Floyd Landis against unsubstantiated doping allegations, to provide the means to attain fairness for Floyd, and to bring justice to those responsible for misconduct in the case."

The fund further says that it "is committed to provide Floyd the professional resources to ensure that science, fact and due process decry the sports bureaucrat's unsubstantiated allegations." The website claims that "Anti-doping organisations and sports bureaucracies have acted with gross misconduct in Floyd's case," and that "The facts of Floyd's case bear witness to these egregious problems in process, analysis and with bureaucrats uninterested in achieving a fair outcome."

"By championing Floyd Landis' case and assisting him to win his fight for a far and just outcome, the Floyd Fairness Fund hopes to leave a legacy of advocacy for athletes' rights to compete in fair and clean sport by advancing best practice standards in anti-doping testing and enforcement." PayPal may be used to further these goals.
