Floyd Landis on trial in French hacking case
Disgraced cyclist Landis on trial over alleged hacking of French anti-doping lab's computers
By The Associated Press

PARIS (AP) ' American cyclist Floyd Landis and a former coach are being tried in absentia in France over allegations that they spearheaded a plot to hack into a French anti-doping laboratory's computers.

French court officials say Landis ' who was stripped of the 2006 Tour de France title for doping ' and former manager Arnie Baker never replied to summonses for the Paris trial that opened Thursday.

They are among five defendants on trial following a sweeping French probe into alleged hacking based on claims the Chatenay-Malabry lab made after intrusions into its computer system.

Baker is accused of having asked a consulting firm called Kargus Consultants to hack the lab's computers to try to discredit the doping tests showing Landis doped during the 2006 Tour.
