As well as The Sunday Times revisiting the libel settlement, Armstrong may also face legal action from SCA Promotions who were reluctant to pay out $5 million on Armstrong's sixth Tour victory in 2004 because of suspicions of drug-taking. The Federal investigation against Armstrong may perhaps be reopened and he could face perjury charges at having denied ever doping in court. In the meantime Nike continues to support him – will avoid buying Nike in the futute, although I can't recall having brought their products in the past.
Kimmage's defense fund has now past $61,000 ($61,740.95)* with contributions from 2001 donors. If the UCI continues its action this total will surely grow substantially – I will certainly be making a further contribution.

What a PR disaster for UCI!
