Floyd Landis: The Bionic Man?
Floyd Landis all but disappeared from cycling after a positive doping test 3 years ago. He’s back, and he’s a new man. “Literally,” as Chicago’s Daily Herald explains. He has an artificial hip.
He has undergone a relatively new (to the US, anyway) procedure known as the “Birmingham
Hip Resurfacing” that is supposed to be perfect for active people afflicted with osteoarthritis of the hip.
Although his return hasn’t been widely covered in the press, those in the know are excited. Read more about his return to cycling here.
