Update #2: Landis forwarded another email response, addressed to Rolf Ditesheim, Philippe Verbiest of the UCI, and Hein Verbruggen. See below:
Dear Mr Ditzensheim,
I hope something has not happened to you (!) I have been looking forward to getting to know you good. I have copied Mr. Verbeast at the UCI because a year ago he sent me a similar email asking for some kind of retraction. I don't know what you want retractioned though(!!!).
And I am not living in Switzerland now though and maybe you have a colleague that you trust (and with his records!!!) that can represent me in my upcoming trial. If he can represent me for 500 Swiss Franks that would be GREAT (!!) because I am broke. (that would be 250 swiss franks up front!!!).
One other thing is I want to request that the trial be in Zurich in the summer because it is beautiful there but cold. If Zurich doesn't work possibly San Diego(?????). I live here!!
This is a serious matter
Update: Check out Landis' hilarious response to the UCI at the end of this cyclingnews article. (Yes, now we're in a full mobius strip of linkage)
Today's news has understandably infuriated Floyd Landis. To get a sense of the hypocrisy and inconsistency of the UCI, check out the letter below. Verbruggen, McQuaid, and the UCI are suing Landis for saying something that they've demonstrated to be absolutely true today. The German TV interview referenced within is here. For more perspective on Landis' credibility regarding the UCI, check out what he says about them in the Kimmage interview, as well as the subsequent corroborating documents unearthed by Cyclocosm.
