Following a decision by the US Anti-Doping Agency to ban Armstrong for life and strip him of his record seven Tour de France titles, world cycling’s governing body, the UCI, has just weighed in on USADA’s report. It painted Armstrong as the leader of what the US based organization called the most sophisticated doping program it had ever seen.

For the latest on the UCI’s decision, we are joined live on the phone by our own Liu Xin, who was at the press conference in Geneva where UCI President Pat McQuaid announced how his organization is reacting to USADA’s findings.

Q1. Liu, what has the UCI decided when it comes to Lance Armstrong?

Q2: And now of course, comes the fallout - what are those you have spoken to over there expecting to happen next?

The USADA report, claiming Armstrong and his teams used steroids, the blood booster EPO and blood transfusions. It included statements from 11 former teammates who testified against Armstrong. Armstrong has continued to deny doping, saying he passed hundreds of drug tests while calling the USADA report a witchhunt and biased against him.
