Washington, Oct 11 - Legendary American cyclist Lance Armstrong and his teammates ran the most sophisticated and successful doping programme in the history of sports, the organisation controlling anti-doping efforts for the US Olympic movement has alleged.
Evidence shows "beyond any doubt" that Armstrong, a cancer survivor who won seven straight Tour de France titles, and his teammates at the US Postal Service Pro Cycling Team (USPS) "ran the most sophisticated, professionalised and successful doping programme that sport has ever seen," the US Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) said in a statement Wednesday.
The organisation issued the statement in connection with the planned release later Wednesday of more than 1,000 pages of evidence that it says incontrovertibly proves the cycling team's culpability in doping.
The documents include sworn testimony from 26 individuals, including 15 cyclists with knowledge of USPS Team's doping activities, the USADA said. (IANS)
