Cycling chief awaits USADA’s evidence on Armstrong


The chief of world cycling’s governing body is questioning why American anti-doping authorities have not sent him the file of evidence that prompted them to erase Lance Armstrong’s seven Tour de France titles and ban him for life. International Cycling Union President Pat McQuaid (pictured right) on Saturday said the United States Anti-Doping Agency had not given the UCI a date to expect the details, and he sounded impatient to receive them. “UCI assumes that USADA have the file, the full file, as they’ve already made a decision based on it, and therefore it’s difficult to understand why it hasn’t arrived yet,” McQuaid said from the Road Cycling World Championships in the southern Netherlands. – Associated Press
