UCI could respond 'any time' to Armstrong report

MILAN (AP) - Cycling's governing body says it could respond "at any time" to allegations by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency that 7-time Tour de France winner Lance Armstrong was a serial drug cheat.

The International Cycling Union received the USADA's report last week and has until Oct. 31 to decide whether to appeal the anti-doping agency's decision to strip Armstrong of his Tour titles to the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

UCI spokesman Enrico Carpani told The Associated Press on Thursday its decision "could happen as early as tomorrow."

He adds "from now on be very careful, because the UCI decision could be any time."

The USADA report has already cost Armstrong key sponsors, including Nike and Anheuser-Busch. Armstrong also stepped down on Wednesday as chairman of the Livestrong cancer charity he founded.
