From Cycling News:
“Cassani said, “Landis is one of the favourites for the Tour de France, along with Basso, Ullrich and Vinokourov”, while Bulbarelli, mistakenly calling Landis a Mormon, also had praise for the American. In an interview with Phonak DS Adriano Baffi, RAI-TV’s Alessandro Fabretti asked Baffi about Phonak at the Giro and he explained, “We’re very happy about how Gutierrez rode at the Giro and are looking forward to the Tour, where Landis will be our leader.”
Not that there is anything wrong with being mistaken as a Mormon. 😉
I wonder who the best Mormon cyclist is? Maybe this guy?

I get mistaken for a Rastafarian all the time, (not that there’s anything wrong with that either, except for all the Reggae…
Landis might pull it off, but I might be stickign with Basso. Looked strong in the Giro.

Oh man Le Tour is gonna be a blast this year. VN called Basso’s win the beginning of the “Basso era”, but I don’t think it’s that cut and dried. Landis & Ulrich (& others) will have their say as well…
