SEOUL, South Korea (AP) - IOC President Jacques Rogge says the Olympic body will consider whether to help fund a truth-and-reconciliation process in cycling.

Cycling's governing body, the UCI, is proposing an amnesty program for riders and officials to come forward with information on doping in the wake of the Lance Armstrong scandal.

UCI President and IOC member Pat McQuaid has written to IOC members asking for their support after the World Anti-Doping Agency refused to cooperate.

Rogge says he has not received a request from the UCI to help fund the process, but the IOC would consider the possibility.

Speaking at a news conference in Seoul, he says "whether we will do this or not is something we are going to do in the executive board."

The executive board next meets in Lausanne, Switzerland, on Feb. 12-13.
