Landis summoned to France

Now there's some movement in the Landis case as Floyd is summoned to appear on Feb 8 before the L'Agence Française de Lutte contre le Dopage .... a romantic sounding name for the not-so-romantic French anti-doping agency. The Landis camp was granted an additional two weeks, after AFLD's chief had requested Landis to show up on Jan 25 and Landis' lawyers had requested some more time to be fully prepared. Since Landis won't attend the appointment in person, his Power Training Camp running Jan 20-27 in Temecula, CA, is obviously not a factor in the 2-week delay. Interestingly, way back (I think) in July, the 2007 camp was completely booked and interested riders were told to check back on the site for availability in the 2008 camp. Only just recently, limited space became available again. No, I'll be in Hawaii at the time, and No, I'm not even thinking of switching places.
