April 10, 2014 – Lance Armstrong has revealed new details about his use of performance-enhancing drugs (PEDs) including the names of people who provided him with the drugs reports USA Today. This information was contained in court documents and made public on April 9.

When asked who provided him with PEDs, Armstrong named four people: Pepi Marti, Dr. Pedro Celaya, Dr. Luis Garcia del Moral and Dr. Michele Ferrari. He further named three people who delivered the PEDs: masseuse Emma O’Reilly, bike mechanic Julien de Vriese and motorbike courier, Philippe Maire. While stating that he usually administered PEDs himself, Armstrong claims that his use of the drugs was sometimes supervised by Dr. Celaya, Dr. del Moral, or Dr. Ferrari.

The court documents also allege that Armstrong’s directeur sportif, Johan Bruyneel, “participated in or assisted with” the use of PEDs. Bruyneel is still fighting charges that link him to Armstrong’s use of PEDs.

Lawyers for Armstrong’s former teammate Floyd Landis filed the documents as an exhibit in Landis’ federal whistleblower lawsuit against Armstrong. Armstrong claims that he believes that Thomas Weisel, the financier of Armstrong’s U.S. Postal Service cycling team, was also aware of his use of banned methods. Weisel denies this claim.
