The Hartford Courant says WADA and UCI received a report on Lance Armstrong's recent haircut.
A hair sample? That's what France is banking on in its report to the International Cycling Union and the World Anti-Doping Agency.
French Doping Agency chief Pierre Bordry declined to disclose details of the report. "I sent [the report] in order to get an opinion on the matter. I am not making any judgments," Bordry said.
Armstrong said it was the first time he had to provide a hair sample. He said the test "butchered" his haircut.
Cycling Weekly says the report discusses Armstrong's behavior. Gee, that's news.
The exact nature of the report has not been revealed, but it is likely that Armstrong was not happy to have an impromptu haircut.
The seven-times Tour de France champion was visited in Beaulieu-sur-Mer, France, on Tuesday, March 17, whilst training for July's Tour de France. AFLD inspectors requested the usual blood and urine samples, and also removed a sample of hair for analysis.
"Yet another 'surprise' anti-doping control," wrote Armstrong on his Twitter site a day later. "This one from the French authorities. Urine, blood, and hair! Classic..."
Armstrong had to get his hair cut short after the sample was taken as the testers had left it "butchered".
No wonder Armstrong wanted his own unique Catlin-testing protocol. That would retain his flamboyant hairstyle, seen at the left (um, pretty droll).
