Anti-doping agency lays out its case

UNDATED (AP) - The U.S. Anti-Doping Agency says 11 of Lance Armstrong's former teammates served as witnesses against him in its investigation of the cyclist, revealing "the most sophisticated, professionalized and successful doping program that sport has ever seen."

     In more than 150 pages, USADA details cheating by Armstrong's teams. Among the former teammates named are Tyler Hamilton and Floyd Landis.

     The report accuses Armstrong of depending on performance-enhancing drugs to fuel his victories and "more ruthlessly, to expect and to require that his teammates" do the same.

     Armstrong did not fight the USADA charges, but insists he never cheated.
