Doping and Cycling

The sport of cycling continues to be dogged by allegations of doping. French officials are probing Tour de France champion Lance Armstrong's U.S. Postal team.

He claims his health and career were ruined and that other young cyclists may have been affected in the same way. NPR's Tom Goldman reports.
