WASHINGTON, United States of America – “Overwhelming” evidence shows Lance Armstrong engaged in the biggest doping conspiracy in sports history to win the Tour de France seven times, the US Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) said Wednesday, October 10.
USADA chief executive Travis T. Tygart said USADA has submitted a report on why it banned Armstrong for life in August to the International Cycling Union and World Anti-Doping Agency and released more than 1,000 pages of supporting evidence gathered in a probe of Armstrong and the US Postal Service team.
“The evidence of the US Postal Service Pro Cycling Team-run scheme is overwhelming,” Tygart said.
“The evidence shows beyond any doubt that the US Postal Service Pro Cycling Team ran the most sophisticated, professionalized and successful doping program that sport has ever seen.”
That includes testimony from 26 people, 15 of them with knowledge of US Postal riders and doping activities.
“Different categories of eyewitness, documentary, first-hand, scientific, direct and circumstantial evidence reveal conclusive and undeniable proof that brings to the light of day for the first time this systemic, sustained and highly professionalized team-run doping conspiracy,” Tygart said. – Agence France Presse
