Floyd Landis and French Courts

I did a search but couldn't find anything on Floyd Landis. Looks like he quit Team OUCH!

Anyone wanna see Flandis riding the 2010 Tour with team Radio Shack?

Not happening. Floyd isracing for Rock Racing. He did tear up the TT in the Tour of the Bahamas, beat David Z's record. ( which I missed by a mere one minute 19 seconds)

But its a long way from the current iteration of the Tour of the Bahamas to the Tour de France.

He did wear Rock Kit at the Bahamas, but he hasn't confirmed that he's racing with them for the rest of the year. See the link I posted above.

You're right though, Rock looks like his best prospect and there's no way they'll get invited to the Tour.

He showed up at Valley of the Sun in his Ouch kit ... didn't do well and didn't show for stage 3.

Just saw on ESPN's ticker that a French judge just issued an arrest warrant for him for hacking into a drug testing company's computer.

Yep, goes back to the '06 Tour disqualification. You gotta admit - it's one effective way to make sure he never races in France again.

Other than the announcement, this is old news, old case, and has nothing to do with whatever he's doing nowadays.

Nope.

But it means a trip to Europe is out of the question.

He wouldn't have to hack the lab to get info about results. With their repeated leaks to media they've shown over and over they have no security whatsoever anyway.

French after Landis... Again

An article in the LA Times tells about how the French are still after Landis. How many ways can they screw this guy over?
In a nutshell: Floyd Landis, international expert computer hacker, claim French.

WTF????

You're correct, he would not need to do it to get his results. I think the allegation is that he hacked to get other information on the lab for his defense (lab procedures and such). Information he would not have had access to.
