BRUSSELS, Jan 18, 2013 (AFP) – Lance Armstrong’s former team director Johan
Bruyneel is set to present his version of events of the doping scandal that
has enveloped cycling in a book, Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf reported on
Friday.

According to the newspaper, Bruyneel wanted “to put everything into the
right context and correct the false image that the USADA (US Anti-Doping
Agency) report, the media and people like Tyler Hamilton and Floyd Landis have
given”.

Bruyneel, who was in charge of the US Postal Service team and oversaw
Armstrong’s seven Tour de France wins between 1999 and 2005, was reported as
saying that he would also continue his fight against the USADA with a hearing
set to take place soon.

“I am going to continue as long as I feel I receive a fair trial, without
prejudice from USADA,” indicated Bruyneel, who, alongside Armstrong, was the
subject of several doping allegations in the United States.
