Black Rock Desert - Organizers of the annual eight-day-long 'Burning Man' festival have unveiled plans for a three-week-long event in July to coincide with the Tour de Franz. The proposed event in the desert, nicknamed 'Burning Manhood', will celebrate steroids in sports.
During the festival, Guest of Honor Floyd Landis is expected to be presented with a key to the tent city. Other expected participants include: former Mr. Universe Arnold Schwarzenegger, 25-to-40 percent of Major League Baseball, former Canadian sprinter Ben Johnson, former US shot putter C. J. Hunter, former East German team medical consultant Dr. Manfred Höppner, Bay Area Laboratory Co-Operative (BALCO) and the top three finishers in the 1996 Tour de Franz.
Master of Ceremonies has been named as 'SpaceElevator', who was handpicked by Mr. Landis for his curious ability to make an unassisted solo ride into the Top Twenty writers on TheSpoof.com.
