The Japan Times Saturday, July 29, 2006 SULLY, Iowa (AP) Cycling icon Lance Armstrong got a taste of Iowa's muggy summer weather, a bit of pie and adulation from thousands of fans Thursday as he continued his trek across the state. Riding in his second day of the Register's Annual Great Bicycle Ride Across Iowa, Armstrong and his cycling entourage made a quick pit stop in this rural town where he was swarmed by riders, reporters and residents awaiting his arrival. But the seven-time Tour de France champion's ride coincided with reports that former teammate Floyd Landis, winner of this year's Tour, tested positive for high levels of testosterone after July 20's stage. Armstrong, who long has been hounded by doping accusations despite never testing positive, initially declined to comment on Landis' situation. After finishing his ride Thursday, Armstrong told reporters during a teleconference to wait for the results of Landis' backup sample. "I don't know much about Floyd's case. I do know that we've got a suspicious A sample and we're waiting on the B sample to be confirmed," said Armstrong.
