Int'l Cycling Union Rejects Claim By USADA's Travis Tygart Of Armstrong Case Cover-Up
The Int'l Cycling Union (UCI) "has rejected claims made by the man who led the investigation into Lance Armstrong that it was complicit in a cover-up of the disgraced cyclist's doping," according to the PA. U.S. Anti-doping Agency CEO Travis Tygart alleges that "Armstrong has evidence pointing to a cover-up." The UCI responded in a statement, rejecting the claims and reiterating that "it has nothing to hide, while also attacking Tygart." A UCI spokesperson said, "The fact is that Mr. Tygart has no evidence of any wrongdoing and has chosen to make headlines on a convenient interpretation of a conversation he had with Lance Armstrong. He should establish the facts before jumping to conclusions" (PA, 4/26).
