Tour director: Ball is now in Lance's 'camp'
Story Tools: Print Email
Associated Press
Posted: 30 minutes ago



PARIS (AP) - The director of the Tour de France said it was a "proven scientific fact" that Lance Armstrong had a performance-boosting drug in his body during his 1999 Tour win, and that the seven-time champion owed fans an explanation.

In a story Wednesday, Jean-Marie Leblanc praised L'Equipe for an investigation that reported that six urine samples provided by Armstrong during the 1999 Tour tested positive for the red blood cell-booster EPO. The French sports daily on Tuesday accused Armstrong of using EPO during his first Tour win in 1999.

"For the first time and these are no longer rumors or insinuations, these are proven scientific facts someone has shown me that in 1999, Armstrong had a banned substance called EPO in his body," Leblanc told the paper.

"The ball is now in his camp. Why, how, by whom? He owes explanations to us and to everyone who follows the tour," Leblanc said. "What L'Equipe revealed shows me that I was fooled. We were all fooled."

Armstrong, a frequent target of L'Equipe, vehemently denied the allegations on Tuesday, calling the article "tabloid journalism."

"I will simply restate what I have said many times: I have never taken performance-enhancing drugs," he said on his Web site.

L'Equipe reported that six urine samples provided by the cancer-surviving American during the 1999 Tour tested positive for the red blood cell-booster EPO. The drug, formally known as erythropoietin, was on the list of banned substances at the time, but there was no effective test to detect it.

The allegations surfaced six years later because EPO tests on the 1999 samples were carried out only last year - when scientists at a lab outside Paris used them for research to perfect EPO testing. The national anti-doping laboratory in Chatenay-Malabry said it promised to hand its finding to the World Anti-Doping Agency, provided it was never used to penalize riders.

Five-time cycling champion Miguel Indurain said he couldn't understand why scientists would use samples from the 1999 Tour for their tests.

"That seems bizarre, and I don't know who would have the authorization to do it," he told L'Equipe. "I don't even know if it's legal to keep these samples."

L'Equipe's investigation was based on the second set of two samples used in doping tests. The first set were used in 1999 for analysis at the time. Without those samples, any disciplinary action against Armstrong would be impossible, French Sports Minister Jean-Francois Lamour said.

Lamour said he was forced to have doubts about L'Equipe's report because he had not seen the originals of some of the documents that appeared in the paper.

"I do not confirm it," he told RTL radio. But he added: "If what L'Equipe says is true, I can tell you that it's a serious blow for cycling."

The International Cycling Union did not begin using a urine test for EPO until 2001, though it was banned in 1990. For years, it had been impossible to detect the drug, which builds endurance by boosting the production of oxygen-rich red blood cells.

Jacques de Ceaurriz, the head of France's anti-doping laboratory, which developed the EPO urine test, told Europe-1 radio that at least 15 urine samples from the 1999 Tour had tested positive for EPO.

Separately, the lab said it could not confirm that the positive results were Armstrong's. It noted that the samples were anonymous, bearing only a six-digit number to identify the rider, and could not be matched with the name of any one cyclist.

However, L'Equipe said it was able to make the match.

On one side of a page Tuesday, it showed what it claimed were the results of EPO tests from anonymous riders used for lab research. On the other, it showed Armstrong's medical certificates, signed by doctors and riders after doping tests - and bearing the same identifying number printed on the results.

L'Equipe is owned by the Amaury Group whose subsidiary, Amaury Sport Organization, organizes the Tour de France and other sporting events. The paper often questioned Armstrong's clean record and frequently took jabs at him - portraying him as too arrogant, too corporate and too good to be real.

"Never to such an extent, probably, has the departure of a champion been welcomed with such widespread relief," the paper griped the day after Armstrong won his seventh straight Tour win and retired from cycling.

Leblanc suggested that in the future, urine samples could be stashed away for future testing as detection methods improve - another possible weapon in the fight against doping.

"We're so tired of doping that all means are good as long as they are morally acceptable," he told L'Equipe.


GET OVER IT RETARDED FUCKS!!!

He cleaned house for seven years and your ignorant egoistical asses can''t take the fact than an american beat your fucking tour SEVEN TIMES SEVEN TIMES SEVEN TIMES SEVEN TIMES SEVEN TIMES SEVEN TIMES SEVEN TIMES.

Nobody understands how and why urine samples were kept since 99. Fuck not even the previous record holder couldn't understand and to top it off the fucks of L' equippe paid for the research... yeah call that a believable test.

Go stick up your fucking french fried thumbs deep inside your fucking asses and GET OVER IT!!

The stupid thing about this is, even if Lance didn't race, there were some Tour De France Races where the french wouldn't have won anyway. Get over it.

I hate the French. Lot's. But I'm not exactly a big fan of the one nutted wonder after the shit he was saying. He needs to check his ego. Last time I checked, nobody in America gave a shit about cycling. The only reason they ever did is because we loved watching half a man kick the crap out of France on their own territory. And even then all anyone really wanted to hear was a 30 second spot on the news.

But that's not enough for the ego trip that he is now. After years of being told he's a living God, his ego is out of control. He forgets that if he was from any other country in the world he would not have a fraction of what Americans have given him. He wouldn't be getting bikes from OCC or dating some shrieking pop star, or having his stupid rubber braclets strapped around millions of kids. None of that would have happened if he wasn't American. Hell, if he wasn't born in America, he might not have ever been properly treated and cured of cancer. That's right Lance, you didn't beat shit. You were cured by medicine and a partial castration.

So before Lance ever gets the nerve to preach about one of the most boring sports in history being unapreciated or whatever his rant was about, he needs to remember that he's damned lucky that anyone even knows his name.
