Armstrong Dismisses Latest Landis Doping Claims
ROTTERDAM, Netherlands (AP) -- Lance Armstrong says he is too busy to pay attention to the latest allegations by former teammate Floyd Landis that he has engaged in doping during his career.

Landis, who was stripped of the 2006 Tour de France title for doping, gave the Wall Street Journal additional details about his use of banned doping products in a story published Saturday and again accused Armstrong and his teammates of receiving blood transfusions during the 2004 Tour.

In a statement sent to The Associated Press through his manager, seven-time Tour de France winner Armstrong described Landis' claims as ``a carton of sour milk: once you take the first sip, you don't have to drink the rest to know it has all gone bad.''
