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.

Wow. This is sad to see such a revered athlete go down so hard. I don't know whether to feel sorry for him or participate in the witch hunt.

And as great as those charges are, according to the USADA wouldn't you think the rest of the team would be banned also? Know why they aren't? Because the USADA basically told them they were all guilty but they wouldnt be penalized if they swore Lance used illegal substances. Fckin FRAUD. The USADA is a JOKE

The USADA has yet to provide any concrete evidence to support their claim. I'm not really inclined to take the word of convicted cheaters such as floyd landis as truth without hard evidence to back it up.

TMZ save the "disgraced" title for people like lindsey and trashian girls. This man has done more for charity than u can imagine. If u take out all the cyclist who has doped u wont find a single one left. Only differences is he was on a team with a bunch of snitches

Good. People may now understand that his claims of innocence are and always have been on the same level of self inflicted delusion as Sandusky's.

I've still seen no proof. All I've seen is hearsay from a bunch of jealous, less successful, losers.

Yet after all the accusation they still have no failed test or proof besides testimony. Lies are told by the guilty all the time to make themselves look like a better person. Floyd cheated and did all he could to drag lance down with him. If this was such a huge conspiracy then why is it that only 1 team has been accused? Your going to tell me that the Post office team is the only ones who have done this? It makes no sense that only 1 team has done this and this is clearly a witch hunt by the French who can't stand the fact that an American has set a record in their race that they can never break. he won 7 times and that is a fact. he never failed 1 drug test, and thats a fact. They have only sited the USPS team and no other team in a conspiracy that could never have been kept under raps for as long as they claim with no other teams either finding out or doing the same thing.

This is a shame that the USADA has allowed itself to be sold out at the request of the French.
