Landis heads team at Battenkill

Organisers of the 2009 Tour of the Battenkill have announced that Floyd Landis will be amongst the riders competing in the Professional Invitational event on April 19 in Cambridge, New York. After serving a suspension for doping, Landis returned to professional cycling in January with Team OUCH, which will be racing the Tour of the Battenkill for the first time.

"This is a new race for us, and the hard nature of the course and the racing suits our team well," said team Directeur Sportif Mike Tamayo. "We're looking forward to making an impact on the race."

The Tour of the Battenkill features a challenging 124-mile course with 16 dirt road sections in Upstate New York's Washington County. Another 21 Professional and Elite teams are expected for the race.
