Armstrong applauds Landis’ return

“People serve their time, and when their time is up they get to go back to work,” said Armstrong. “Sometimes I get frustrated with people who criticize his return, and then they stand up and cheer when David Millar returns.

“It’s the same thing. You serve your suspension, get back on the bike.”

Armstrong said Italian Ivan Basso, the biggest name in the peloton to be snared by the Operación Puerto drugs scandal, should also be given a second chance.

“There’s no point in criticizing Basso or Landis ─ they’ve paid their penalty … that’s normally the way society works and let’s forgive and forget and get back on down the road,” he said.
