USADA: damning indictment of Lance Armstrong

USADA About page and logo

“Armstrong doped throughout his career”

USADA has finally published its long-awaited ‘Reasoned Decision’ aleeging sustained doping by racing cyclist Lance Armstrong and others in his team. I’ve only dipped into the 202-page document for now, but – it’s mind-blowing!

USADA: US Postal ran the ‘most sophisticated, professionalised and successful doping program that sport has ever seen’

• Report says Armstrong used doping products throughout his career

• USADA: Armstrong supplied performance enhancing drugs to team-mates

Six former team-mates banned following testimonies against Armstrong

No hint of lipstick today! But a load of very red faces…and some tough decisions to be made by the UCI, cycling’s international governing body.

Once they officially receive the USADA dossier, they have 21 days to either enforce a lifetime ban on the Texan cyclist and wipe the results sheets of his name between August 1998 and 2010, or appeal the decision to the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

The entire submission is available in PDF format on the USADA website.[1]
