Omega Pharma – Quick-Step Cycling Team Statement Regarding Leipheimer

Following the information released by Usada regarding Levi Leipheimer, Omega Pharma – Quick-Step Cycling Team announces that the rider has been placed on non-active status. The Team takes the decision of Usada and the consequent statement of Mr. Leipheimer very seriously. The Team wants to review and consider all the information now being made available and speak personally with the rider before a final decision is made.

The Team would like to point out that the battle against doping has always been a guiding principle of the team’s activities and work ethic.
The suspension imposed by the Usada refers to a period of time when the athlete was not part of Omega Pharma – Quick-Step Cycling Team.

    funny how armstrong is so horrible and his records must be erased yet a certain hincapie was feted all the way through the USA Pro Challenge this past summer and yet he admits that he doped (and supposedly USADA knows this) as recently as 2005. why are his “achievements” any less suspect and subject to erasure? record number of participations in le tour and some classics? will levi be stripped of his podium placings at le tour? exactly how does this make the sport “whole”? will jonathan v be allowed to continue holding a license and being a part of professional cycling? how do you root out the entire sickness?
