Floyd Landis will ride in the Tour of Southland next month.

The controversial cyclist was stripped of his 2006 Tour de France title and has been a key witness in the case against Lance Armstrong.

Cycling Central reports that Landis will ride for the Stewart Imrie Financial Services team, having also competed in the race in 2009.

Tour organiser Bruce Ross says he has no issue with Landis riding as he has served his time and isn't worried that he'll attract negative attention to the tour.
