Ruling on Landis to come Monday

June 29, 2008


— Floyd Landis will find out Monday if he can reclaim his 2006 Tour de France title.

The Court of Arbitration for Sport said that it will announce the result from a five-day appeal hearing held in New York City in March.

Three CAS-appointed lawyers heard 35 hours of testimony from 24 witnesses at the closed-door hearing at a Manhattan law firm.

Landis appealed to the court after an American arbitration panel ruled last September that he used performance-enhancing substances during his victory. Landis was stripped of the title.
