Floyd Landis – Redemption Comes from Within, Floyd’s of Leadville - Here's what folks forget about Floyd Landis; On 19 July, 2006, during stage 16, Floyd Landis lost the Tour de France. It was the day that everything went wrong.
The next day, Floyd had the ride of his life. He rode his heart out...on a ruined hip, he destroyed the field like few others ever did. When he needed it most, he had the ride of his life.
Ultimately, Floyd won the 2006 Tour De France, of course, the story doesn't end that way. The 2006 tour, tainted before it began, had entire teams and numerous favorites barred from competing; such was the state of cycling in the mid-aughts.
Now, Floyd lives a fulfilled life. He's run through the gauntlet of public rejection to redemption. He's comfortable with who he is, what he's done and where he is headed. It turns out, Floyd is a lot like us...and if we take his life and measure it as a whole, our man Landis comes out with a balanced, reasoned and experience laden approach to life--and we couldn't be more proud.
Floyd founded Floyd's of Leadville. His company produces hemp-based products including CBD and CBG proteins, tinctures, etc all designed to help people relax and recover.
