Armstrong met with panel investigating doping in cycling
AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — An attorney for Lance Armstrong says the cyclist talked with investigators recently about doping in the sport’s past.
Elliot Peters told The Associated Press that Armstrong set up the meeting and sat for questions for seven hours on May 22 in Northern Virginia, and described the session as a “very good meeting.”
The probe has been expected to center on the International Cycling Union’s handling of doping in the late 1990s and early 2000s, especially its links with Armstrong.
Armstrong won the Tour de France every year from 1999-2005, but those titles were stripped after a massive report by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency detailed doping by him and his U.S. Postal Service teammates.
