AN international arrest warrant has been issued by a French judge for American cyclist Floyd Landis in connection with a case that involves data hacking at a doping laboratory.

Pierre Bordry, the president for the French anti-doping agency (AFLD) has told numerous media outlets that Thomas Cassuto, the French judge is seeking to ask Landis questions, with evidence pointing to him that he hacked into an agency computer which dates back to September 2006.

The Tour de France 2006 title was stripped from Landis, after being found guilty in the doping case where he tested positive for abnormal high testosterone levels.

The labs which then performed and handled the rests reported that in November 2006, the computers containing the data were hacked and the IP of the hacker traces back to Arnie Baker, Landis' coach.
