Hein Verbruggen Threatens to Sue UCI Over ‘biased and Wrong’ Doping Report

Former UCI president Hein Verbruggen has threatened legal action against cycling’s governing body over its “outrageously biased, misleading and frequently wrong” investigation into the sport’s doping past. A 227-page report into cycling’s doping culture stated in March that the UCI colluded with Lance Armstrong to cover up positive tests at the 1999 Tour de France, when Verbruggen was in charge of the organisation. Verbruggen fought back on Wednesday as he launched a website in which he published a detailed criticism of the Cycling Independent Reform Commission’s report.
