Floyd Landis, the cyclist who was stripped of his Tour de France victory in 2006 is being sought after an international warrant was issued for his arrest, according to Reuters. He stands accused of hacking a laboratory computer in France where his doping tests were housed in an attempt to prove the anti-doping agency wrong. "It seems that (Landis) made all he could to enter into our computer system to try to prove the laboratory was wrong. He showed many documents he got by hacking to numerous sporting instances," said an anti-doping official. "The judge traced a network of hackers back to the ringleader." Before the 2006 Tour de France, Landis won the first Tour of California.
