Michael Ball and Rock Racing Team Named in Sealed Warrant
Michael Ball, a California fashion designer (of the now-defunct Rock and Republic) and owner of the renown Rock Racing bicycling team, has been named in a sealed warrant pertaining to the FDA investigation of Floyd Land.
Rock Racing Team, which had tried–and failed–to sign Landis to the roster two years ago, recently lost its professional status. Landis served as an unofficial adviser to the team in 2008, and once rode as a guest of the team in the Tour of California.
Given Landis’ doping confessions, the timing of the investigation into the team is unavoidable. You can check out all the details of the inquiry at the New York Daily News.
