People who aren't into professional cycling may only vaguely know the name Floyd Landis, but they should. It was Landis, a disgraced winner of the Tour de France, whose doping confessions helped trigger the scandal that brought down Lance Armstrong.
Landis and Jonathan Vaughters (both former Armstrong team-mates) and Travis Tygart, CEO of the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency, will be speaking at a Yale Law School forum Thursday about the performance-enhancing controversy that has plagued professional cycling for years.
It was Tygart's massive report on doping by Armstrong and his U.S. Postal cycling team that finally forced Armstrong to end his years of denials and his attempt to bully into silence anyone who tried to tell the truth.
The forum "Spinning Our Wheels?" is scheduled for Thursday at 4:30 p.m. at Yale Law School's Levinson Auditorium in New Haven.
