Floyd Landis will have his next day in court on March 19 before the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS), his attorney Maurice Suh told the "Reuters" press agency. "We are really looking forward to appealing the (USA) decision and optimistic the CAS panel will view favourably for Floyd."

According to "Bloomberg.com", Suh said that the hearing is expected to last five days and will probably be held in New York.

In September Landis was given a two-year suspension following a positive test for testosterone during the 2006 Tour de France.

When Suh announced that the suspension would be appealed, he said, "We will prove, once again, that the French laboratory's work violated numerous rules and proper procedure, rendering its results meaningless and inaccurate.
