Cyclist Landis Stripped of 2006 Tour de France Title

American Floyd Landis has been stripped of his 2006 Tour de France championship title for using banned drugs during the race. Runner-up Oscar Pereiro of Spain was pronounced the new winner.

The case represents the first time in the more than 100-year history of the Tour that a victory has been revoked by doping charges.
