Evidence against Armstrong unveiled

WASHINGTON - Lance Armstrong was at the heart of the biggest doping conspiracy in sports history when he won the Tour de France seven years in a row, a U.S. Anti-Doping Agency report said Wednesday.

U.S. ADA submitted a report to the International Cycling Union and World Anti-Doping Agency on why it banned Armstrong for life in August and released more than 1,000 pages of evidence from its probe of doping in cycling.

“Lance Armstrong did not merely use performance-enhancing drugs. He supplied them to his teammates,” the report said. “He was not just a part of the doping culture on his team. He enforced and re-enforced it.”

Evidence included testimony from 11 of Armstrong’s former U.S. Postal cycling teammates, an expert’s finding that Armstrong blood changes indicated doping and documents showing a payment to doping-linked doctor Michele Ferrari.
