  1. LONDON (Reuters) -- Tour de France winner Floyd Landis has given a positive drugs test for the male sex hormone testosterone, his Phonak team said on Thursday.

    "The Phonak Cycling Team was notified yesterday by the UCI of an unusual level of testosterone/epitestosterone ratio in the test made on Floyd Landis after stage 17 of the Tour de France," Phonak said in a team statement.

    Shouldn't Floyd have twice as much testosterone as Lance or John Kruk?

    If true, the dude will be disgraced forever. Artificial hip or not, he will have raced his last race.
