Recent reports have been released confirming that Lance Armstrong spoke with Oprah Winfrey and admitted to the use of doping techniques to win his seven Tour de France titles. Now the International Cycling Union (UCI) is putting the pressure on Armstrong to testify before its independent commission on doping to confirm the UCI's role in turning the other cheek with regard to his drug use.
"If these reports are true, we would strongly urge Lance Armstrong to testify to the Independent Commission established to investigate the allegations made against the UCI in the recent USADA reasoned decision on Lance Armstrong and the United States Postal Service team," the federation said in a statement.
The UCI has indicated that no additional comments will be made until it has had the opportunity to see the Armstrong interview which is scheduled to be broadcast on Thursday and Friday evening.
Former UCI President Hein Verbruggen was not willing to discuss the situation at this time.
"I haven't seen the interview. It's all guessing," Verbruggen said. "After that, we have an independent commission which I am very confident will find out the truth of these things."
