Floyd Landis Convicted For Hacking Into French Doping Lab's Computers

A French court has convicted embattled cyclist Floyd Landis for his reported role in hacking a French doping lab’s computers, the Winnipeg Free Press reports.

Landis, who in 2006 was stripped of his Tour de France title, has been served a 12-month suspended prison sentence for his role in the plot to hack into the WADA-accredited lab. The 36-year-old retired rider was charged with hacking into the lab’s computer system in an attempt to obtain documents to clear the fallen cyclist’s name.

The lab, located in the town of Chatena-Malabry, was specifically targeted because it was the one that uncovered Landis’ reportedly raised level of testosterone which disqualified him after winning the 2006 Tour de France.

In September of 2007, Landis was found guilty of doping and was banned from the sport of cycling for two years.
