It was 10 years ago today that his explosive doping allegations against Lance Armstrong went public and led to a media storm at the Amgen Tour of California. Now, Floyd Landis has replied without malice to comments Armstrong made in the upcoming ESPN documentary LANCE by Marina Zenovich.

In it, Armstrong says, "It could be worse, I could be Floyd Landis, waking up a piece of shit every day," but Landis, who suffered his own disgrace after being disqualified from winning the 2006 Tour de France when he tested positive for testosterone, says he has no animosity toward Armstrong.

Cyclingnews is the world's leader in English-language coverage of professional cycling. Started in 1995 by University of Newcastle professor Bill Mitchell, the site was one of the first to provide breaking news and results over the internet in English. The site was purchased by Knapp Communications in 1999, and owner Gerard Knapp built it into the definitive voice of pro cycling. Since then, major publishing house Future PLC has owned the site and expanded it to include top features, news, results, photos and tech reporting. The site continues to be the most comprehensive and authoritative English voice in professional cycling.
