UCI Chief Concerned Over Wait In Armstrong Case

By  | 

AIGLE, Switzerland (AP) - The head of cycling's governing body says the wait to receive the U.S. evidence in Lance Armstrong's doping case is a "cause for concern."

Cycling body UCI complained Thursday about what it sees as a delay in receiving the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency's files that led the agency to strip Armstrong of his seven Tour de France titles and ban him for life.

USADA said Wednesday it would send its "reasoned decision" to the UCI by Oct. 15, and that the cycling body already knows that. The files had previously been expected to be turned over by the end of September.

Still, UCI President Pat McQuaid says "USADA's continued failure to produce the decision is now a cause for concern."
