Floyd Landis will find out Monday if he can keep his 2006 Tour de France title. The Court of Arbitration for Sport said Friday that it will announce the result from a five-day appeal hearing held in New York City in March.

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.
