The American cyclist Floyd Landis was convicted by a French court for his role in hacking into the computers of the anti-doping lab that caught him cheating at the 2006 Tour de France.

The court in Nanterre, west of Paris, handed Landis and his former coach Arnie Baker 12-month suspended sentences for benefiting from information culled from computers at the Chatenay-Malabry lab.
