US cyclist Levi Leipheimer jokes prior to the start of the Tour de France cycling race in France, July 15, 2004. Eleven teammates of Lance Armstrong on the U.S. Postal Service Cycling Team including Leipheimer have turned on him offering evidence and testimony to back up allegations that Armstrong used performance-enhancing drugs in competition, the USADA said. The U.S. Anti-Doping Agency released a damning report last week containing testimony from former teammates and other witnesses against Armstrong, and has ordered that he be stripped of his seven Tour de France titles. The international cycling federation is yet to indicate its next move. (AP Photo/Peter Dejong)
