Floyd Landis Wins! – More Sports – 2006 Tour de France – Landis becomes third American to win Tour – Sunday July 23, 2006 3:14PM

PARIS (AP) — The highs and lows of Floyd Landis’ nail-biter of a bike race ended without a hitch Sunday as he won the Tour de France and kept cycling’s most prestigious title in American hands for the eighth straight year.

The 30-year-old Landis, pedaling with an injured hip, cruised to victory on the cobblestones of the Champs-Elysees, a day after regaining the leader’s yellow jersey and building an insurmountable lead in the final time trial.

“I kept fighting, never stopped believing,” Landis said, shortly after he received the winner’s yellow jersey on the podium, joined by his daughter, Ryan.

How tough is he? He needs a hip replacement, but won anyway.

One year ago today, on a lazy afternoon with too much time on my hands, I logged on to Blogger, took the plunge, and haven’t looked back since.

I would like to thank the supporters of this blog….

Many Happy Returns!
