Armstrong tries to exclude Betsy Andreu and Greg Lemond from Lawsuit

Lance Armstrong‘s lawyers have filed a list of potential witnesses and evidence they want a judge to exclude from upcoming $100 million federal trial in November

The list includes Betsy Andreu, Greg LeMond, evidence of a car crash in Aspen in late 2014 and a damning report against Armstrong in 2012 by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency.

The report famously stated that Armstrong’s team “ran the most sophisticated, professionalized and successful doping program that sport has ever seen.”

According to Armstrong’s legal team: “This prejudicial overstatement reflects the attitude of the report’s authors, and the aggressive agenda to take down Armstrong that the report was written to fulfill, and hence the prejudicial bias which saturates the report.”

Of Betsy Andreu, they state: “She has no relevant testimony to offer and she should not be permitted to testify in this case, or use it as a soapbox for impugning Armstrong’s character.”

Armstrong’s attorneys also say LeMond, a former Tour de France winner, is not relevant to the case and describes him as a “vocal critic” of Armstrong’s.

“While LeMond is well-versed in the prevalence of doping throughout the sport during the relevant time period (1997-2004) and still owns the record for the fastest time trial in Tour de France history, he has no personal knowledge regarding Armstrong, the USPS sponsorship agreement, or invoices submitted for sponsorship payments,” said the document filed by Armstrong’s attorneys.
