Lance Armstrong Doping Charges: Doctor Denies Claims

New, comment

Lance Armstong is in the middle of more doping allegations, as the seven-time Tour de France champion is being charged with using EPO, blood doping, testosterone, corticosteroids, and masking agents to beat doping tests by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency. Luis Garcia del Moral, one of the doctors charged in the case, has denied all charges.

"These charges are the same as those which the Justice Department decided not to pursue after a two-year investigation, and once again and like every year, within weeks of the Tour de France, there is emerging news about cyclist doping allegations in which, again, we are involved," Garcia del Moral told Marco.com.

"Never in my career have I used doping substances," he continued. "Never in my career has there been a positive for doping among athletes who have trusted me with their health and sports medicine."
