Lance Armstrong ordered to testify under oath

In this July 29, 2007 file photo, Lance Armstrong, seated into a car of the Discovery Channel cycling team, right, jokes with teammate George Hincapie  during the 20th and last stage of the 94th Tour de France cycling race between Marcoussis, southwest of Paris, and Paris. Hincapie was the "Loyal Lieutenant" who helped Lance Armstrong to seven Tour de France titles, only to later provide the key testimony that brought his downfall. Now, Hincapie is peeling back the shroud that has long covered the dark era of doping in cycling in a book due out next month that is part memoir, part mea culpa. AP

Admitting he cheated was a start. Now, it's all about whether Armstrong is ready to give details, lots of them, to clean up his sport. Hamilton, whose testimony helped lead to Armstrong's downfall, says if Armstrong is willing to provide information to clean up the sport, a reduction in the sanctions would be appropriate.

First shunned, then vilified by Lance Armstrong, Mike Anderson had to move to the other side of the world to get his life back.

Now running a bike shop outside of Wellington, New Zealand, Armstrong’s former assistant watched news reports about his former boss confessing to performance-enhancing drug use with only mild interest. If Anderson never hears Armstrong’s voice again, it would be too soon.
