NY Daily News - Lemond Subpoenaed

Greg LeMond subpoenaed by government in widening doping probe of Lance Armstrong's teams

Among the documents that the subpoena orders LeMond to produce are any that are related to the four cycling teams Armstrong has led on the Tour de France since his comeback from cancer to victory in 1998: U.S. Postal Service, Discovery Channel, Astana, and Radio Shack.

The letter orders LeMond to appear at a federal courthouse in Los Angeles on July 30.

Wall Street Journal -
Cycling Investigators Subpoena LeMond

The types of documents likely subpoenaed include emails and phone transcript:
A major focus in the LeMond-Trek lawsuit was the extent of the relationship between Trek president Richard Burke and Mr. Armstrong. Mr. LeMond's attorneys obtained emails between Messrs. Armstrong and Burke that allegedly show the two were close, the person familiar with the case said.

Documents in the case also include a transcript of a 2004 phone conversation between Messrs. LeMond and Burke. In that conversation, Mr. LeMond said he believed there was mounting evidence that Mr. Armstrong was doping. "Well, I still get back to the innocent until proven guilty, and that's somebody else's job," Mr. Burke replied, according to the transcript of the conversation reviewed by the Wall Street Journal.

Wow go and read the Lemond interview. Use a web page translation like google. It is a stunning read despite the poor english that results. Lemond really speaks his mind and it is very much worth hearing.

Armstrong Hits Back at LeMond in Televised Interview

Mr. Armstrong reserved his strong language in Sunday's interview for Mr. LeMond. "We are going to have an opportunity to tell the truth to the authorities, and I hope Greg LeMond will tell the truth about 1989," Mr. Armstrong said, referring to Mr. LeMond's surprising victory in the Tour after a hunting accident had put his career on hold. "He's going to have to tell the truth. I have nothing to hide."

Lance Armstrong's lawyer: 'Stop leaks'

Lance Armstrong's attorney sent a letter to the federal prosecutor investigating the seven-time Tour de France winner and his associates for possible fraud and doping violations, complaining about leaks to the media.

Monday's letter from Tim Herman to Assistant U.S. Attorney Douglas Miller in Los Angeles says it's "especially unfair to subject Mr. Armstrong to this continuing media blitz when he is in the middle of his final Tour de France."
