USADA to Publish Thousand-Page Report Detailing Lance Armstrong’s Involvement in Doping Ring

The United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) announced today through their website that they are set to publish a one thousand page document detailing the involvement of Lance Armstrong and other members of the United States Postal Service cycling team's doping activities.  The statement refers to the team's activities as "the most sophisticated, professionalized and successful doping program the sport has ever seen."

The report is said to contain sworn testimony from 15 of Armstrong's former teammates with knowledge of his and other rider's doping activities.  11 of the cooperating riders, including Tyler Hamilton, George Hincapie and Floyd Landis, are named in the statement.

Armstrong had previously made waves this year when he said that he would no longer be contesting the charges levied against him by the USADA, saying it would take too much of his time and energy away from his family and cancer foundation.  As part of this decision, he waived his right to an arbitration hearing where he may have been confronted with this evidence publicly.

The entirety of the material will be made available online at www.usada.org later today.
