Cycling’s world governing body the UCI have up to 21 days to come up with a response to the Lance Armstrong doping saga after receiving the damning report made by the United States Anti-doping agency.
This week USADA released a 1,000 page report in which it says Armstrong – the winner of seven Tours de France titles – played a key role in the “most sophisticated, professionalised and successful doping programme sport has ever seen”.
UCI president Pat McQuaid said: “That will be sent in 21 days. I mean, in the legal department I’ve told them that this is a priority, that we get job done as quickly as possible, and certainly within that time frame we will be back.”
As a result of their investigation USADA handed Armstrong a life-time ban and stripped him of his tour de France titles.
On Friday race director Christian Prudhomme announced those titles will not be redistributed to the other podium finishers as the sport at the time was tainted by doping.
