Landis' second test bad too

Floyd Landis was dropped Saturday by his Swiss racing team, and Tour de France officials said they no longer consider him the winner, after a second test confirmed evidence of synthetic testosterone in his system. If the International Cycling Union formally strips Landis of the yellow jersey, Oscar Pereiro will likely be declared the winner. That process could take months. Landis, meanwhile, continues to deny taking nay banned substances and says he intends to fight the charges.
