VAIL ” Today, when the 2007 Tour de France rides into Paris for the finale, the 2006 Tour de France winner will be riding with about 1,000 cyclists through Eagle County.

Floyd Landis, last year’s Tour de France winner, will be participating in Sunday’s Colorado-Eagle River Ride.

Landis has been in Aspen training for the Aug. 11 Leadville 100 Mountain Bike Race.

In early June, Landis was in Vail for a mountain bike race and road bike hill climb at the Teva Mountain Games, but hasn’t done any races or much training since then as he was promoting his book, “Positively False: The Real Story of How I Won the Tour de France.” Before the Teva Mountain Games, Landis was at his arbitration hearing with the United States Anti-Doping Agency regarding allegations that he tested for abnormally high levels of testosterone during the 17th stage of the 2006 Tour de France. Landis’ case is still undecided.

BAUTZEN, Germany ” Bobby Julich finished second in the 24-kilometer time trial stage at Bautzen Saturday in Sachsen Tour International, only behind Rabobank’s Joost Posthuma.

The five-day race started Wednesday and will conclude today.
