WADA urges support for USADA

AP

MONTREAL — The World Anti-Doping Agency has urged cycling's governing body to support United States anti-doping officials and provide documents to help their case against Lance Armstrong.

WADA said it wrote to International Cycling Union President Pat McQuaid on Tuesday, asking him to withdraw a request to take jurisdiction of the Armstrong case from the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency.

WADA said it reminds the cycling body that the agency "which discovered the violation must have results management authority" in a case.

Armstrong could lose his seven Tour de France titles if he is found to have doped throughout his career, as USADA alleges.
