Armstrong Responds to Drug Allegations

Armstrong fires back again at Landis

Once teammates, Floyd Landis, left, and Lance Armstrong likely won’t be having dinner together any time soon after Landis sent an e-mail to USA Cycling that not only implicated himself in doping he’s long been suspected of, but also Armstrong, who has long-denied cheating.

Lance Armstrong is lashing out at former teammate Floyd Landis for a second day. He calls the disgraced cyclist a liar and dismisses his allegations that the seven-time Tour de France champion is a drug cheat.

Armstrong fired back Friday by posting detailed e-mails on his website from, among others, Landis and Tour of California officials.

Armstrong's team, RadioShack, said the messages illustrate "a troubling, angry and misplaced effort at retribution" by Landis.

He accused Armstrong of doping, teaching other riders to cheat and paying off a top cycling official after allegedly testing positive in 2002.

Armstrong has denied all of Landis' allegations.
