SACRAMENTO (AP) - Floyd Landis crashed his bike today in Sacramento during a training run for the Tour of California.
The former Tour de France champion still plans to compete Saturday in his first race back from a two-year doping ban, which expired Jan. 30.
Landis' crash was announced by Tour of California officials moments before he was due to appear at a news conference promoting the race, which begins with a prologue Saturday in downtown Sacramento. Stage 3 will run from San Jose to Modesto on Tuesday.
A Tour spokesman said Landis was "bruised up pretty good," but will compete in the race.

Landis won the 2006 Tour de France, but tested positive for synthetic testosterone. He spent much of the last two years attempting to clear his name.
