Could it be that Floyd Landis and Lance Armstrong will ride for the Shack?

25_lance-landisb4start_002 " Team RadioShack to make their debut at the Tour down Under. Lance' s first race for the Shack," is what the team Radio Shack just announced on Twitter.

But the cycling world is abuzz with the news that Floyd Landis (who currently rides for team Ouch) could be riding again at Lance Armstrong' s side in Australia next year.

According to Bloomberg, which spoke with Armstrong recently in Ireland:

"Armstrong refused to rule out inviting former U.S. Postal teammate Floyd Landis to the new team. Landis won the 2006 Tour de France, then lost the title for doping.

Armstrong said he hadn’t actively considered Landis, who underwent hip-replacement surgery after being suspended for doping during the 2006 Tour.

“I wouldn’t rule anything out,” Armstrong said. “He’s a great rider, a tremendous story.”

Armstrong and Landis were teammates for three Tour de France victories after which Landis won the Tour as well only to have his victory be nullified by a well publicized performance drug violation, followed by a two year suspension from professional cycling.
