Alleged doping cyclist, Floyd Landis , can now remove the “alleged” part of that title. In Thursday’s Wall Street Journal , it was revealed that Landis sent emails to several cycling officials, including members of USA Cycling and the International Cycling Union (UCI) , as well as sponsors.

In these emails, not only does Landis admit to being guilty of doping, but he also points fingers at several of the sport’s stars, including George Hincapie , Dave Zabriskie , Levi Leipheimer and Lance Armstrong . Landis also alleges that team officials, including Team Radio Shack ’s team manager, Johan Bruyneel , tolerated and in some cases encouraged doping.
