UCI Wants to Suspend Own Doping Probe Into Armstrong Affair

Jan. 25 (Bloomberg) -- The International Cycling Union wants to suspend its own independent commission into the Lance Armstrong doping affair because it is seeking a wider remit.

Speaking at the first procedural hearing of the UCI Independent Commission in London today, the UCI said no amnesty for witnesses who come forward to give evidence can go ahead without changes to the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) code.

Instead, UCI counsel Ian Mill QC said the governing body wants to establish a truth and reconciliation commission with WADA to cover other sports, “and not be limited to cycling alone.”

The hearing will reconvene at 12:15pm local London time today.
