Floyd Landis' spokesman Michael Henson has denied recent reports that the American will retire from the sport, branding them as "misleading". Cyclingnews spoke to Henson after Landis was unreachable, believed to be training in the mountains near his Californian home.

Henson's statement is as follows:

"These recent wire reports regarding Floyd's supposed 'retirement' are misleading and miss the more subtle point that Floyd made during his interviews with Het Laatste Nieuws and Gazet van Antwerpen and that were re-reported by Agence France Presse."
