LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Associated Press has learned that the director of the Swiss anti-doping laboratory informed federal authorities last fall that Lance Armstrong’s test results from the 2001 Tour de Suisse were “suspicious” and “consistent with EPO use.”
Martial Saugy made the statement in September.
The revelation came to light Wednesday as attorneys for Armstrong demanded an on-air apology from CBS’ “60 Minutes” for its recent report raising questions about whether the Austin cycling great used banned substances.
