LAUSANNE, Switzerland (AP) -- American Floyd Landis will find out
Monday if he can reclaim his 2006 Tour de France title. The Court
of Arbitration for Sport said today that it will announce the
result from a five-day appeal hearing held in New York City in
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, and the
International Cycling Union declared Oscar Pereiro the 2006 Tour winner.
