The independent panel investigating doping in cycling hopes the chance for reduced bans and even immunity will encourage witnesses - including Lance Armstrong - to come forward.
LONDON (AP) — A three-man independent panel will investigate cycling's doping past, including allegations the sport's governing body colluded with Lance Armstrong.
Armstrong says a truth and reconciliation program is the "only way" to deal with cycling's doping crisis and the sport's governing body should have no role in the process.
Seven lines of blanks. From 1999 to 2005. There will be no Tour de France winner in the record book for those years.
The final word on Lance Armstrong's seven Tour de France titles could come Monday when cycling's governing body gives its response to the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency report that paints the American as a longtime drug cheat.
The Tour de France will have no official winner for the seven races from 1999-2005 if Lance Armstrong is stripped of his victories by the International Cycling Union.
Lance Armstrong is calling this one "Retirement 2.0." Almost a month after finishing 65th in his last competitive race in Australia, and nearly six years removed from the last of an unprecedented seven straight Tour de France titles, the 39-year-old cyclist made clear there is no reset button this time.
Cookson did not say whether Armstrong or former UCI presidents Hein Verbruggen and McQuaid had been contacted by the commission but added they would be more than welcomed.
"Riders and teams owners have been forthright in saying that it is possible to win clean — and I agree with them."
