Disgraced U.S. cyclist Floyd Landis revealed new cheating allegations in a series of messages to sponsors and officials, alleging that former teammate Lance Armstrong not only joined him in doping but taught others how to beat the system.

The Giro d'Italia, one of cycling's three grand tours, is on schedule to begin in the District in 2012, marking the first time one of the sport's most prominent races would conduct a stage outside Europe.
