The Belgian Sports press thought that the Floyd Landis Arbitration verdict would be announced on Friday July 06, 2007. The assumptions are 1) that the transcripts were completed on June 11, 2007, 2) the findings of fact completed by the lawyers of USADA and Landis on June 25, 2007. The Arbitration panel then has 10 working days to complete the award.

Question is, did the Belgians factor in the National Holiday of July 4th? Perhaps late Monday or Tuesday at the earliest.

Bill Hue has the low down on the arbitration rules that would change the timing. Peloton Jim is keeping the Pope Watch going with apropos pictures.
