Former WADA president Dick Pound was critical of the return of Lance Armstrong into the peloton. Pound has long been at odds with Armstrong.

Pound told Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf that he wasn't convinced it was a clean return. "With his comeback not all doping accusations go away." Pound was still wondering about the six samples of the 1999 Tour.

The samples at the time were not treated according to protocol, which is why the results were purely speculative. Armstrong has announced that he will work together with anti-doping expert Dr. Don Catlin.

Even that couldn't satisfy Pound. "As long as there is no WADA or IOC accredited lab created, his plan is irrelevant," Pound told De Telegraaf.
