France Issues Arrest Warrant for Floyd Landis--No More French Riviera Vacations

If you're one of those people who takes comfort in knowing someone else has screwed up far worse than you ever will, look no further for this week's pick-me-up than Floyd Landis.

The French have issued an arrest warrant for the cyclist. They claim he hacked into the French Anti-Doping Agency's computer in 2006. That was the year Landis won the Tour de France, then had his victory taken away because he was charged with doping.

And now the French believe in order to prove his innocence, Landis hacked their computers.

But the warrant can only be served in France.

Landis hasn't twittered (@TheRealFloydL) since the 6th, and on January 27th he was in San Diego. Looks like we won't be seeing any tweet from TheRealFloydL saying, "Enjoying a glass of wine after a ride through Aix-en-Provence" any time soon.

So if you're feeling down today, men, look no further than Floyd Landis to make you happy; at least you didn't self-induce a second round of puberty only to find that you can't vacation in France ever again because of it.

  1. I've been a computer engineer for 15 years and knows lot about computer science (master's degree!) But I don't think I am not capable of hacking into a federal agency computer system. How can someone riding a bicycle 14 hours a day and don't have any computer knowledge can hack into the computer????? Unless it's a trap, say "French Anti-Doping Agency" on Facebook "Want to join?"
