talian prosecutor Benedetto Roberti could press charges against Michele Ferrari, the former trainer to U.S. cyclist Lance Armstrong, who the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency says was at the center of a long-running doping scandal. On Wednesday, the agency revealed more details about Armstrong's alleged doping, explaining why it decided to strip Armstrong of all seven of his Tour de France titles and ban him from professional cycling. Ferrari, who was also banned from the sport in Italy and the U.S., was Armstrong's trainer until 2004, and according to the report, he taught Armstrong how to hide his alleged doping from being detected in drug tests.
