USADA chief executive Travis T Tygart said USADA has submitted a report on why it banned Armstrong for life in August to the International Cycling Union and World Anti-Doping Agency and released more than 1,000 pages of supporting evidence gathered in a probe of Armstrong and the US Postal Service team.
