Johan Museeuw's house has been searched again by police acting under the authority of the court in Kortrijk, as part of the Jose Landuyt doping affair, according to Sportwereld.be. Police were looking for Museeuw's health booklet, which would contain details of any medications that he had taken during his racing career. The UCI requires all professional riders to have one. However, the booklet could not be found.

Museeuw, who retired exactly one year ago and is now working in a PR role for Quick.Step, was given a four year ban (with two years suspended) by the Belgian cycling federation's disciplinary commission for his involvement in the Landuyt affair. Landuyt was a Belgian veterinarian who was accused of supplying doping products to horses and pigeon racers, as well as cyclists. Three other professionals were also implicated: Jo Planckaert, Chris Peers, and Mario de Clercq. All of them received similar sentences and all have since ended their careers.
