Is Armstrong Target Of New Probe?
 
08/29/2005
The International Cycling Union announced Monday it will investigate reports of positive drug tests at the 1999 Tour de France, but the union stopped short of naming seven-time winner Lance Armstrong as a target.

Allegations surfaced last week in the French daily sports newspaper L'Equipe that Armstrong used the performance-enhancing drug EPO to help win his first Tour de France in 1999.

Armstrong is a frequent target of L'Equipe and has denied the allegations.

The UCI says it regrets the breach of confidentiality in the disclosure of samples, but says it is pressing ahead with its own assessment.

Cycling's world body said it "will communicate its conclusions on this case within the next ten days."
