11 former members of Lance Armstrong's United States Postal Service cycling team TURNED on the disgraced athlete -- and testified against him in an investigation by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency.

The USADA announced .... the cyclists who provided evidence to the organization include George Hincapie, Tyler Hamilton and disgraced former Tour de France champ Floyd Landis.

“The U.S.P.S. Team doping conspiracy was professionally designed to groom and pressure athletes to use dangerous drugs, to evade detection, to ensure its secrecy and ultimately gain an unfair competitive advantage through superior doping practices,” the USADA said in a statement.

“A program organized by individuals who thought they were above the rules and who still play a major and active role in sport today.”

The USADA says its investigation into Armstrong uncovered "the most sophisticated, professionalized and successful doping program that sport has ever seen."

As we previously reported, Lance has been banned from cycling for life.

The man has one testicle, has overcome lung, brain and abdomen cancer and won so many times over when he could have given up and allowed himself to die. These performance enhancing drugs...what if they were stem cells? Would that just open up a whole new discussion of morality that is better off left unopened from his point of view?

Wow, these people just won't let it go. They have some serious vendetta against Armstrong. Guess what, whatever he may or may not have done he still PASSED every drug test. Leave him alone you phucking idiots at the USADA.

Why now? these teammates suddenly want to come forward? if they were gonna say something they should've done it years ago - they are the losers for not reporting him IF he did do it. Sad. Still cant sway me from respecting the guy. So many ppl love to just throw others under the bus that its hard to believe it. People are evil.

Marion Jones denied it all too.

We will never see a Roger Maris, a Mickey Mantle, Hank Aaron, or Pete Rose ever again.

They all cheat.

after Roger Clemens and the other athletes who have sworn up and down, on their grandmothers' graves, that they haven't juiced or violated the rules - only to then shrug their shoulders and say, yeah ok i did - why is anyone surprised about Armstrong? His narcissism, his adamant denials, his moral outrage - it all sounded hollow and all-so-familiar. He was never a `hero'. He was a person. A guy who was athletic and talented, who got cancer and survived as many people do, he left his wife and various relationships, he sought the spotlight thru his cycling and foundation work, he created a culture of himself - Lance - but in the end it was exactly that, a culture revolving around himself. Some people will never believe it bc they can't reconcile the charitable works with self-promoting egocentrism - but it's an age-old story, just given modern dimensions.

Don't blame others, Lance... you did what you did to win... take some responsibility for your actions.

It's not the doping I have a problem with. Everyone was doing it. It's that, even after 2nd, 3rd & 4th placers admitted doping for years, he still denied it - righteously. Schwarzenegger, Agassi & Marion Jones have bigger balls than this phony, pseudo moral fake named Lance Gunderson.
