Cycling Union: Armstrong made 'important step'

Published: 01.18.13, 10:25 / Israel News

The International Cycling Union (UCI) says Lance Armstrong's confession of doping is "an important step" toward repairing the damage he did to cycling. UCI President Pat McQuaid says Armstrong confronting his past, in an interview with talk-show host Oprah Winfrey, moves cycling "forward on the long road" to restoring confidence in the sport.


McQuaid highlights that Armstrong "confirmed there was no collusion or conspiracy between the UCI and Lance Armstrong." Armstrong reportedly paid the UCI $125,000 which former teammates testified was in exchange for covering up suspicious drug tests. (AP)
