Lance Armstrong's defamation trial ended yesterday after charges were withdrawn by Italian cyclist Filippo Simeoni. Armstrong also withdrew his defamation action against Simeoni, the lawyer for the Tour de France great said. Neither cyclist was at the court in Latina, near Rome. "The case is over after both actions have been withdrawn," lawyer Enrico Nan said. Simeoni brought defamation charges against Armstrong following an April 2003 report in the French newspaper Le Monde.

With Lance Armstrong still digging in for a legal fight, the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency on Tuesday issued lifetime sports bans to three former staff members and consultants on Armstrong's winning Tour de France teams for doping violations. Luis Garcia del Moral was a team doctor; Michele Ferrari was a consulting doctor; and Jose "Pepe" Marti (team trainer) worked for Armstrong's U.S. Postal Service and Discovery Channel squads. All had been accused by USADA of participating in a vast doping conspiracy on those teams during part or all of Armstrong's seven Tour de France victories from 1999-2005.

Lance Armstrong huddled close to other riders yesterday and finished 49th in the first stage of the Tour de France, a leg that Germany's Erik Zabel won in a mass sprint. Armstrong, aiming for his third consecutive title, remained in third place in the overall standings. The Texan finished third in Saturday's prologue, an individual time trial in Dunkirk. On a gray and windy day, Zabel completed the 120.78-mile circuit between St. Omer and this northern port city in 4 hours, 55 minutes, 15 seconds.

AUSTIN, Texas - The U.S. Anti-Doping Agency on Wednesday granted Lance Armstrong an extension of up to 30 days to contest drug charges while the seven-time Tour de France winner challenges the case in federal court. The move erases the Saturday deadline for Armstrong to either send the case to arbitration or accept sanctions from USADA, which would likely include a lifetime ban from cycling and other sports along with stripping the Tour titles he won from 1999 to 2005. Armstrong this week sued in U.S. District Court in Austin to block the case from moving forward, arguing that USADA's arbitration process violates his constitutional rights and that the agency doesn't have jurisdiction over the alleged doping violations.

It is perhaps the biggest part of cycling - the neverending game between the testers and the dopers. The testers develop better tests and the dopers take less-detectable dope and the cycling cycle continues. That will undoubtedly be the biggest topic again now that the Tour de France is under way - which riders were booted from the race for booting dope. Maybe, when it's all over, you'll remember who won. Maybe not. The sport should end the ineffective charade. Cycling should legalize it - all of it, from steroids to growth hormone to blood boosters.

Kayla Burt ended her college basketball career at Washington yesterday, four days after her internal heart defibrillator activated during a game. Burt, 23, had the defibrillator implanted in her chest after her heart stopped on New Year's Eve 2002. She was in her off-campus apartment and teammates came to her rescue, performing CPR until paramedics arrived at the scene and took her to the hospital. "The decision is a mutual agreement between myself, my family, the doctors and the University of Washington," Burt, a senior guard, said at a news conference with coach June Daugherty and the Huskies' team doctor, Kim Harmon.

LANCE ARMSTRONG challenged the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency to name names and show what it had on him. On Wednesday, it did. The anti-doping group released a report on its case against Armstrong - a point-by-point roadmap of the lengths it says Armstrong went to in winning seven Tour de France titles USADA has ordered taken away. In more than 150 pages filled with allegations, USADA names 11 former teammates - George Hincapie, Tyler Hamilton and Floyd Landis among them - as key witnesses.

THE DOCTOR who is a central figure in the Lance Armstrong doping scandal also is the target of an Italian criminal investigation that is nearing completion. "It's not finished yet, but it's coming to a close," Padua prosecutor Benedetto Roberti told the Associated Press on Thursday. Roberti has been leading a sweeping investigation of Dr. Michele Ferrari for several years. His comments came after the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency issued its report detailing why it banned Armstrong for life from cycling and ordered all seven of his Tour de France titles erased.

Lance Armstrong and a banned Italian physician have met repeatedly in Europe since severing formal ties in 2004, including as recently as last year before Armstrong's final Tour de France, a high-ranking Italian law enforcement official told the Associated Press yesterday. Michele Ferrari was cleared in 2006 of criminal charges accusing him of distributing doping products to athletes, but he remains barred for life by the Italian Cycling Federation. Italian authorities suspect Ferrari of continuing to work with 20 to 30 top level cyclists despite his ban, including Armstrong, and are actively pursuing that line of investigation, the law enforcement official said.
