Armstrong to Meet With Reform Commission (CIRC)

Lance Armstrong is scheduled to meet again with the UCI’s Cycling Independent Reform Commission (CIRC) over the coming weeks. 

Armstrong is currently serving a lifetime ban from the sport, after admitting to using performance enhancing drugs almost two years ago.  

According to Armstrong, the meeting is scheduled to take place in the United States, however, he would not confirm as to the exact date or location of the meeting. 

"I’ve always said I will make myself fully available to an international commission tasked with helping our sport heal and move forward after multiple generations of rampant doping,” Armstrong told the media. 

Armstrong’s first meeting with CIRC first took place earlier this year, in which case his legal team described it as being a “very good meeting”, wherein the former US Postal rider was “asked about everything.”

The three Commission members are chairman Dick Marty, a Swiss politician and lawyer; Ulrich Haas of Germany, and Austrian Peter Nicholson.

It’s no secret, that Armstrong hopes to mitigate his life-time ban by cooperating with the commission. 

The CIRC was set up by the UCI to investigate doping in cycling’s past, to include any collusion the UCI may have played. 

Furthermore, it has offered reduced bans to those who have been willing to come forward and offer their full cooperation and testimony .
