Floyd Landis will appear before the Court of Arbitration in New York today. The American will present his case to regain the 2006 Tour de France crown that was stripped from the former Phonak rider when he lost an appeal to the American Arbitration Association to overturn the sanction for his positive drug test from the race.

The hearing, which takes place in the chambers of a Manhattan law firm, is Landis' last chance to clear his name and regain the 2006 Tour crown, as the decision handed down by CAS can not be appealed. The case, heard behind closed doors, will take a maximum of five days and is scheduled to finish on March 24.

It is not yet known when a decision will be handed down.
