Bicycle racer charged with computer hacking

A French judge has issued a national arrest warrant for US cyclist Floyd Landis on hacking charges.

A French judge has issued a national arrest warrant for US cyclist Floyd Landis on hacking charges.

The warrant was issued on 28 January after French anti-doping authorities accused Landis of hacking into one of their laboratory computers, Pierre Boudry, the president of France's anti-doping agency, the Agence Française de Lutte contre le Dopage, told Reuters on Monday.

Landis, 34, won the 2006 Tour de France but was stripped of the victory and banned from competing for two years by the International Cycling Union after testing positive for high levels of testosterone.
