BRUSSELS (AFP) — Lance Armstrong’s former team director Johan Bruyneel is set to present his version of the doping scandal that
has enveloped his former U.S. Postal Service team in a book, Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf reported on Friday.
According to the newspaper, Bruyneel wanted “to put everything into the right context and correct the false image that the USADA (U.S. Anti-Doping Agency) report, the media, and people like Tyler Hamilton and Floyd Landis have given”.
Bruyneel, who was in charge of the U.S. Postal Service and Discovery Channel teams and oversaw Armstrong’s seven Tour de France wins between 1999 and 2005, was reported as saying that he would also continue his fight against the USADA with a hearing set to take place soon.
“I am going to continue as long as I feel I receive a fair trial, without prejudice from USADA,” said Bruyneel, who, alongside Armstrong, was the subject of several doping allegations in the United States.
