Several months ago, Floyd Landis was talking on a German radio station about the UCI's delayed announcement of the Contador clenbuterol positive. He, stated, "As far as the UCI is concerned, nothing about a cover up or taking a bribe or some kind of race results manipulation would surprise me.”
For some reason, this really pissed off the UCI, and recently the UCI responded directly to Floyd, a legal representative of the organization, a Mr. Ditesheim, threatening that he will "use all legal processes necessary to defend their [the UCI's] honor."
This prompted Floyd to respond to the UCI's letter with a letter of his own, in full Floyd bitter, bitter, hilarious style:
FLOYD LETTER TO UCI: #1
Dear Mr Ditzensheim,
I hope something has not happened to you (!) I have been looking forward to getting to know you good. I have copied Mr. Verbeast at the UCI because a year ago he sent me a similar email asking for some kind of retraction. I don't know what you want retractioned [sic] though(!!!).
And I am not living in Switzerland now though and maybe you have a colleague that you trust (and with his records!!!) that can represent me in my upcoming trial. If he can represent me for 500 Swiss Franks that would be GREAT (!!) because I am broke. (that would be 250 swiss franks up front!!!).
One other thing is I want to request that the trial be in Zurich in the summer because it is beautiful there but cold. If Zurich doesn't work possibly San Diego(?????). I live here!!
This is a serious matter
Today's exoneration of Contador led Floyd to write a second letter to the poor UCI
Hello Mr Ditesheim'
I haven't heard from you in a few days and thought I'd drop you a note with a few things to ponder. I'd like you to please try to reconcile this (http://www.cyclingnews.com/news/carpani-says-uci-pleased-with-spanish-federations-handling-of-contador-case) with your threat of litigation in light of todays exoneration of Alberto Contador. I look forward to your explanation.
Here's an idea: fire Todd Gugolski, Craig Hummer, and even Phil and Paul. Put Floyd in the booth with a fifth of Jack Daniels and let 'er rip.
