Disgraced bicyclist and admitted doper Lance Armstrong beat back a lawsuit filed by whistleblower Floyd Landis that accused him of defrauding his sports sponsor, the U.S. Postal Service, with this defense: The government agency knew I was doping all along.
The federal government is going after Lance Armstrong's money. As much as it can get.
Page after page of damning details. They came from computer records, books, media reports and, maybe most significantly, the people Lance Armstrong used to train alongside and celebrate with. The people he used to call his friends.
Lance Armstrong challenged the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency to name names and say what it had on him. On Wednesday, it did.
Lance Armstrong said he wanted to see the names of his accusers. The U.S. Anti-Doping Agency gave him 26, including 11 ex-teammates.
The chief doctor of Lance Armstrong's U.S. Postal Service-backed cycling team when the rider won five of his Tour de France victories has dismissed Floyd Landis' doping allegations.
"That story wasn't true. There was no positive test, no paying off of the labs. There was no secret meeting with the lab director," he said.
Former teammate Floyd Landis, who was stripped of the 2006 Tour de France title for doping, alleges in one of the lawsuits that Armstrong defrauded the U.S. government by repeatedly denying he used performance-enhancing drugs.
