Only a day after Lance Armstrong announced his comeback bid for the 2009 Tour de France, Floyd Landis has made his intention to return to the peloton public.

The 32 year-old Landis received a two-year suspension when he tested positive for the use exogenous testosterone after the 17th stage of the 2006 Tour de France. Cyclingnews reported that the rider will be racing for the Momentum Sports Group managed HealthNet-Maxxis team who's current sponsorship is set to end this year. "I cannot confirm or deny it," said Momentum's sponsorship director, Thierry Attias to Cyclingnews.

Landis lost his final appeal for the doping positive earlier this year, but his suspension is set to end on January 30, 2009. The makers of Landis' artificial hip, Smith & Nephew, is the most likely candidate to invest in the rider's return to the professional ranks.
