                   STATEMENT FROM USADA CEO TRAVIS T. TYGART REGARDING
                             DISMISSAL OF ARMSTRONG LAWSUIT


Colorado Springs, CO (August 20, 2012)

“We are pleased that the federal court in Austin, Texas has dismissed Lance Armstrong’s lawsuit and
upheld the established rules which provide Congressionally-mandated due process for all athletes.
The rules in place have protected the rights of athletes for over a decade in every case USADA has
adjudicated and we look forward to a timely, public arbitration hearing in this case, should Mr.
Armstrong choose, where the evidence can be presented, witness testimony will be given under oath
and subject to cross examination, and an independent panel of arbitrators will determine the outcome
of the case.”
