WADA continues Armstrong investigation

The World Anti-Doping Agency is continuing its investigations into doping allegations against Lance Armstrong, WADA president Dick Pound told the Reuters news agency. "It's not going to go away," he said. "We're dealing with all the spins out there right now, but behind the scenes there are investigations quietly proceeding. There is no urgency because he is not going to be in another race, but there are some explanations that are going to have to be given."

Pound also criticized the UCI, saying, "The UCI says it is conducting an investigation, although we can't seem to get information about it, and we are doing our own. I'd rather have the UCI do it, by all accounts they should. If they do a complete and thorough investigation more power to them. But I'm not overly confident so far. Right now the only thing they seem concerned about is how did this embarrassing information became public."
