Cycling federation president Pat McQuaid says an independent panel will examine the allegations that the UCI was complicit in Lance Armstrong's doping. McQuaid tells The Associated Press that senior UCI and World Anti-Doping Agency officials will meet in Russia next week to discuss potential appointments to a three-member expert panel. He says longstanding claims about the UCI and Armstrong's relationship ''absolutely will be addressed,'' including alleged collusion over suspicious test results and cash donations. McQuaid says he's ''very sure that the audit will show that there's nothing untoward ever been done with Armstrong.'' McQuaid says the UCI will ''in the coming weeks'' send the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency laboratory results it requested of samples given by Armstrong during his career.
