British Cycling President Urges Lance Armstrong To Name Names In Interview
British Cycling President Brian Cookson has urged Lance Armstrong "to name names and tell all when he addresses the damning doping accusations against him this week," according to the SUNDAY TIMES. Armstrong is due to be interviewed on U.S. TV by Oprah Winfrey Thursday. Cookson said, “For me the real thing that has to come out is who were these other people involved, who were the people supplying and helping him, the doctors that helped him, the companies that supplied him. If the allegations that he bribed people, that he was given a nod and a wink when the testers were approaching his house and all this kind of thing, are true, let’s have that information. Who did he bribe, where were the payments made, were third parties involved and so on?" The Sunday Times has "taken out an advertisement in the Chicago Tribune with a list of 10 questions it wants Winfrey to ask Armstrong." The Sunday Times revealed in December plans to sue Armstrong for $1.5M as a "result of losing a libel action to him over doping allegations" made in '06 (SUNDAY TIMES, 1/13).
