Three years after his doping admission exposed the rampant performance-enhancing drug use of Lance Armstrong and other American pro cyclists, Floyd Landis will step back into the bicycle world this spring.
Landis, 37, is organizing a "Gran Fondo" amateur race in New York's Catskills Mountains June 1-2. He said he wants the event to focus solely on amateur and recreational riders, not professional racers.
"Professional cycling is organized crime," he told USA TODAY Sports. "I'm done with that."
