‘11 teammates testified in case against Armstrong’

other Updated: Oct 10, 2012 23:37 IST

The US Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) says 11 of Lance Armstrong’s former teammates testified against him in its investigation, revealing “the most sophisticated, professionalised and successful doping programme that sport has ever seen.”

USADA will deliver its reasoned decision against Armstro-ng later Wednesday, a summary of the facts it used to hand him a lifetime suspension and erase his seven Tour de France titles.

In a news release previewing the decision, USADA CEO Travis Tygart listed 11 of Armstrong’s former teammates, including George Hincapie, Floyd Landis and Tyler Hamilton, as among those providing evidence that led to the sanction.
