May 30, 2014 (16:00) [ Indexed from Yahoo! Sports ]
Retired two-time Giro d'Italia champion Paolo Savoldelli has been banned for six months for visiting with a banned physician involved in the Lance Armstrong doping scandal.

Armstrong teammate Hincapie pens stark memoir (The Associated Press)
April 25, 2014 (01:00) [ Indexed from Yahoo! Sports ]
George Hincapie was the ''Loyal Lieutenant'' who helped Lance Armstrong to seven Tour de France titles, only to later provide the key testimony that brought his downfall. Now, Hincapie is talking again about one of the darkest eras in cycling. In a book due out next month, part memoir and part mea culpa, Hincapie discusses not only his rise in cycling, from the son of a Colombian immigrant in the New York City borough of Queens to the top teammate of Armstrong, but also the pervasive use of performance-enhancing substances that came to mark an entire generation - and ultimately turned Armstrong from hero into pariah.

A Texas appeals court has rejected Lance Armstrong's attempts to block an arbitration panel from reviewing $12 million in bonuses paid to him by a company that wants its money back.

The arbitration panel that first approved the settlement agreed to reconsider the case. More...
