AUSTIN, TX (BRAIN) — Several noted critics of Lance Armstrong are venturing into the retired racer's hometown this month to speak at a symposium about doping in cycling.
Three-time Tour de France winner Greg LeMond and his wife Kathy will speak at the event hosted by The University of Texas at Austin College of Communication’s Texas Program In Sports and Media. The symposium is titled “The Real Price of Winning at All Costs: A Discussion about Elite Cycling” and will be held Monday evening, April 22. It's open to the public.
Besides the LeMonds, speakers will include Betsy Andreu, the wife of former Armstrong teammate Frankie Andreu; Bill Bock, a lawyer for the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency; and Reed Albergotti, white collar crimes reporter for The Wall Street Journal. Michael Cramer, TPSM's director, will serve as moderator.
Bock was the lead attorney for USADA in the investigation of the use of performance enhancing drugs by Armstrong and other members of the U.S. Postal Service team. He was the principal author of USADA’s 200-page “Reasoned Decision,” which publicly set forth the evidence against Armstrong.
Albergotti has written and reported extensively for the Journal on the investigations involving Armstrong.
Andreu and Bock are also speaking at the University of Michigan Law School on Tuesday, April 16, Andreu told BRAIN.
Their presentation is entitled "Lance Armstrong and the U.S. Postal Service Cycling Team: Ethical Dimensions & Implications," and will be part of the Law School’s Experts in Ethics, Civility and Professionalism Series. Andreu and Bock are each graduates of the University of Michigan.
