11 teammates testified in case against Lance Armstrong

Posted:

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) -- The U.S. Anti-Doping Agency says 11 of Lance Armstrong's former teammates testified against him in its investigation of the cyclist, revealing "the most sophisticated, professionalized and successful doping program that sport has ever seen."

USADA will deliver its reasoned decision against Armstrong later Wednesday, a summary of the facts it used to hand him a lifetime suspension and erase his seven Tour de France titles.

In a news release previewing the decision, USADA CEO Travis Tygart listed 11 of Armstrong's former teammates, including George Hincapie, Floyd Landis and Tyler Hamilton, as among those providing evidence that led to the sanction.

In delivering the report to the International Cycling Union, Tygart called for the federation to create a program to help clean up the sport.
