Mr. Armstrong has repeatedly denied the allegations, and has only tested positive once for a banned substance -- cortisone -- for which he provided a prescription. The prohibited steroid was in a doctor-provided cream used by many riders to treat saddle sores.</p> Thu, 01 Nov 2012 15:39:57 +0000 51095 at http://wamc.org
