My neighbor (we live in the same town of 93,000 people) and fellow cyclist (he may ride a bit more than me), Floyd Landis rolled out key elements of his defense against doping charges in an online presentation Thursday, several months before the cyclist is to present his case to an arbitration panel in hopes of keeping his Tour de France title.

Early Thursday, Landis posted a PowerPoint presentation prepared by Arnie Baker, a retired doctor and longtime coach and adviser, as well as several hundred pages of documents related to the charges on his Web site, (links to, use PublicAccess/PublicAccess to login and download).

Many thanks to PPT MVP Glenna Shaw for letting me know about the neighborhood news.
