WADA Official Statement on Inaccuracies of Vrijman Report

Following analysis of the so-called "Vrijman report" submitted to the International Cycling Union (UCI) in relation to the August 2005 L’Équipe article that concluded Lance Armstrong had used EPO during the 1999 Tour de France, the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) issues its official statement highlighting a number of the unprofessional, inaccurate, unfair and misleading elements of the report.

As stated on June 2, 2006, WADA is seeking legal advice regarding its recourses against the investigator and any organization, including UCI, that may publicly adopt its conclusions.
