Lance in ‘Sophisticated’ Doping Ring

It might soon get harder for the world’s greatest cyclist to live strong and prosper. The U.S. Anti-Doping Agency said Wednesday that it will make public its entire file on Lance Armstrong, which reportedly says that he was central to one of the most “sophisticated” doping rings in sports history. Armstrong's friend George Hincapie has also come forward and admit to doping. The report will include sworn testimony from 26 people—including former teammates who implicated themselves in the doping ring in order to nail the seven-time Tour de France winner. The agency’s evidence, which climbs to more than 1,000 pages, will be posted Wednesday afternoon on its website. “It’s shocking, it’s disappointing,” says Travis Tygart, chief executive of the agency, of the report. “But we did our job.”
