Armstrong's girlfriend target of US subpoena
May 01, 2015 (07:15) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
The government wants to question Lance Armstrong's domestic partner as part of its civil case against the disgraced cyclist, according to a report in USA Today. Anna Hansen, the target of the subpoena, is the mother of Armstrong's two youngest children. The former seven-time Tour de France winner, who was stripped of his titles because of PED use, is fighting the subpoena, saying it "appears to have been served only to harass Armstrong and his family," according to the USA Today report. Hansen was recently summoned to appear next month in the government's case on behalf of the US Postal Service and whistleblower Floyd Landis. Hansen met Armstrong in 2008, four years after the USPS sponsorship ended, his attorneys state.ADVERTISEMENT "Anna knows nothing about events related to the USPS sponsorship," Armstrong's attorney, Sharif Jacob, stated in an e-mail to government attorneys, according to the USA Today report. But government attorney David Finkelstein replied in an email to Armstrong's legal team that "Ms. Hansen is a fact witness to several issues in this case," according to the USA Today report. The newspaper also reported that Armstrong's attorneys filed several documents Wednesday that outline his legal team's dispute with the government over the sharing of pretrial evidence.

Lance Armstrong: WADA head rebuffed proposed meeting in 2013 (The Associated Press)
April 23, 2015 (02:30) [ Indexed from Yahoo! Sports ]
Lance Armstrong said Wednesday that the World Anti-Doping Agency and others are ''owed an apology'' from him for cheating during his cycling career, but noted that the agency's chief rebuffed efforts to meet back in 2013. David Howman, director general of WADA, told The Associated Press this week that he is disappointed Armstrong had not apologized for costly and time-consuming lawsuits before the former cycling champion admitted using performance-enhancing drugs. Armstrong initially declined comment on Howman's remark, but on Wednesday provided the AP with a May 2013 email exchange with Howman, who initially indicted he could meet with Armstrong, then backed off under advice from WADA lawyers. Armstrong won the Tour de France every year from 1999-2005. More...

Verbruggen rejects Cookson's call to step down as UCI honorary president
April 21, 2015 (05:30) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Hein Verbruggen has dismissed UCI President Brian Cookson's call for him to resign his title of honorary president in a long letter to members of the UCI's Management Committee and said that he is "proud" of the legal action he took against Floyd Landis, Paul Kimmage and others who have spoken on the issue of doping in cycling. Following the publication of the Cycling Independent Reform Commission (CIRC) report last month, which highlighted "numerous examples that prove Lance Armstrong benefited from a preferential status" during Verbruggen's time at the head of the UCI, Cookson wrote to Verbruggen to ask him to step down from his role as honorary president. In a 3,350-word letter to the UCI Management Committee, however, published in full by Belgian newspaper De Morgen on Monday, Verbruggen questioned the validity of the CIRC report and rejected the appeal for his resignation.ADVERTISEMENT Verbruggen complained about what he termed Cookson's "Honorary President-obsession" and lamented that communication with the Briton " with the exception of a letter dated March 17 " "has never been direct, only through his preferred channel, the media. "I have the strong impression that both Messrs. Cookson and [UCI director general Martin] Gibbs [] seem to believe that the whole CIRC-saga is over following the publication of the report and the delivery of the much sought after "evidence" that allows them to take away my honorary title," Verbruggen wrote. "Dear Friends and Management Committee Members, it is definitely not going to be that easy. "Mr.Cookson is in for a surprise if he thinks that I will accept this scandalously biased CIRC-report and the same goes for taking away my honorary title. Indeed, the last word about the CIRC-report has not yet been written. I would like to make you aware that I am having the report analysed by Swiss lawyers."

While the updated Principles of Athlete Selection will serve well for selection to Olympic and other events, theywere published too late to beappropriately used in the selection process to the 2015 Pan Am Championships." Steve Johnson, USA Cycling President and CEO added,We always try to ensure than any changes to athlete selection criteria are published well before athletes are impacted by them. Unfortunately that did not happen in this case, so we have asked the Selection Committee to review their nominations based on the proven, well known and long-standing criteria.

April 16, 2015 (05:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Tyler Hamilton and Lance Armstrong came face to face last week while giving evidence during a USfederal government false claims lawsuit against Armstrong and others.

"It was not easy for me to answer direct questions about him, what we went through. There's a lot at stake. I've read in the papers that it could be up to US$120 million [damages]. "I don't know what he thinks but I know what I need to do. You answer questions that could affect that and that is mind-blowing but I went in there and told the truth. But it [also] sucked [as] there were some questions about his character, with him sitting right there, some of the bullying and stuff. You can read more at Cyclingnews.com More...
