UCI may question former boss over Armstrong allegations

Disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong claimed in The Daily Mail yesterday that Verbruggen was involved in a cover-up over a positive test for a steroid in 1999, the year he won his first of seven Tour de France titles.

UCI president Brian Cookson, who succeeded Verbruggen’s successor Pat McQuaid in September, has made an independent inquiry, in conjunction with the World Anti-Doping Agency, a priority and is especially keen to investigate allegations of corruption.

Armstrong, who was banned for life and stripped of his seven Tour titles last year, would be welcome to give evidence, so too would Verbruggen. Verbruggen has always vehemently denied wrongdoing.
