AUSTIN, Texas (AP) – New court documents filed by U.S. anti-doping officials in their case against Lance Armstrong include a recent interview given by the head of the International Cycling Union saying his agency will wait for the outcome.
Wednesday’s filing is the latest twist in a fight pitting the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency against Armstrong and UCI officials over who has jurisdiction to pursue a drug case against the seven-time Tour de France winner.
Armstrong, who denies doping, and UCI officials say USADA does not have jurisdiction. Armstrong is suing in U.S. federal court to block the case.
USADA filed a transcript of a July 11 interview UCI head Pat McQuaid gave to Belgian media outlet Sporza, saying UCI has nothing to do with the investigation.
Armstrong’s lawsuit is scheduled for a hearing Friday.
