Time is running out for cycling to confront its culture of doping and clean up the sport once and for all, the man who brought down Lance Armstrong said Thursday.
LONDON (AP) — A three-man independent panel will investigate cycling's doping past, including allegations the sport's governing body colluded with Lance Armstrong.
Seven lines of blanks. From 1999 to 2005. There will be no Tour de France winner in the record book for those years.
"His contribution to cycling has been enormous, from both the sporting point of view and his personality. All sports need global icons and he has become a global icon for cycling," said McQuaid, speaking to The Associated Press by telephone from the Tour of Oman. "The sport of cycling has a lot to be thankful for because of Lance Armstrong."
UCI President Pat McQuaid issued a statement offering "sympathies to all members of Weylandt's family, all his friends and teammates, but also to all his colleagues on the Giro, who will have to overcome their grief to continue in the race."
