Armstrong questioning 'would only demonise individuals'

Lance is willing to cooperate fully and has been very clear: He will be the first man through the door, and once inside will answer every question, at an international tribunal formed to comprehensively address pro cycling, an almost exclusively European sport.

We remain hopeful that an international effort will be mounted, and we will do everything we can to facilitate that result.

In the meantime, for several reasons, Lance will not participate in USADA's efforts to selectively conduct American prosecutions that only demonise selected individuals while failing to address the 95% of the sport over which USADA has no jurisdiction.

– Lance Armstrong's lawyer Tim Herman
