The Anti- Doping agency of the USA is all set to reveal the list of the 37 redacted individuals included in the investigation of cyclist Lance Armstrong to an independent commission which is formed to look into the tarnished past of the sport.
USADA chief executive Travis Tygart was the main man behind the investigation of Lance Armstrong and he was instrumental in convicting and punishing the cyclist accused of doping and cheating. Mr. Tygart revealed that the Cycling Independent Reform Commission has been holding talks with major officials over sharing the information from his inquiry and also in order to identify the riders and support staff that is linked to the doping scandals.
Brian Cookson was responsible for the setting up of the CIRC which was created after he removes Pat McQuaid as the president of the governing body UCI in September. The body was responsible for the inquiry and reporting of the dope related cases as it aimed at making the sport clean of the cheaters and mal practitioners. Tygart has always believed that doping is an imminent threat to the sport and the Lance Armstrong case has made it the talk of the town.
Lance Armstrong has the subject of a major controversy following his confession that he has used drugs for enhancing his performances. The former Tour De France winner has been under inquiry for quite some time and the report can be devastating for the cyclist as he faces life long ban, stripping of his medals and also monetary fines.
The CIRC is very strict about its doping regulations and Travis Tygart’s report will be very important as it contains 37 major names who can be convicted of mal practices.
Thus, suspense remains at the moment and the report can be a major talking point for the days to come.
