Lance Armstrong's Tour de Redemption continues. The disgraced athlete’s attorney told the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency that Armstrong plans to cooperate with efforts to “clean up cycling.” Armstrong also plans to appear before the International Cycling Union’s “truth and reconciliation” commission. Armstrong’s attorney Tim Herman also warns, however, that if the USADA truly hopes to clean up the sport, it must turn to the World Anti-Doping Agency and the International Cycling Union to take the lead. It’s unclear at this point, but there’s a possibility that if Armstrong cooperates, his lifetime ban from the sport may be scaled back to eight years, the Associated Press reports.
