BRUSSELS (AP) — The Omega Pharma-Quick-Step Cycling Team has provisionally suspended American rider Levi Leipheimer after the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency released its report on Lance Armstrong.
The team said Thursday the 38-year-old veteran was "placed on non-active status" while the USADA report and Leipheimer's statements are reviewed.
USADA used evidence from 26 people, including Leipheimer, for a report that presented doping evidence against Armstrong.
Leipheimer described his knowledge of the alleged doping program. Leipheimer was Armstrong's teammate for a total of five years during spells with the Postal, Astana and RadioShack teams, before joining Omega Pharma this season.
The team says it wants to speak to Leipheimer in person before deciding on any further action.
