SAN DIEGO -- Cyclist Floyd Landis has pleaded not guilty to wire fraud in San Diego and prosecutors agreed to defer prosecution on condition he makes restitution to people from whom he raised money to fund his fight against doping charges.

Landis entered the plea Friday in federal court and was ordered released on his own recognizance.

The Floyd Fairness Fund exceeded $1 million.

Landis initially claimed he was innocent of doping. He later admitted that he did use performance-enhancing drugs.

Landis was stripped of his 2006 Tour de France title.
