In a similar fashion that Tom Weisel and Steve Johnson were complicit in Armstrong's doping, EDS's Nick Chenowith and USAC's Lisa Voight helped track cycling sprinter Marty Nothstein cover up a positive test prior to the Syndey Olympics, where Nothstein won gold.

Nothstein is said to have lead a similar type of doping structure, first in within track cycling during the 90's and later within the domestic road scene while on the professional team the 'Navigators'. Additional athletes were involved, including Kirk Obee, Nathan O’Neill, Adam Sbeih, Vassili Davidenko, and Phil Zajicek.

In Nothstein's book 'The Price of Gold'', the issue of doping is entirely absent from the treatment of his biography, which seems appropriate given the investigation.

"While this is an extremely difficult time for the sport, I believe that riders of today understand that doping is intolerable, that it will be discovered, and that a decision to engage in doping in any form is senseless." said Steve Johnson, CEO of USA Cycling.

The 'Last Great American Sprinter' soon to join 'Armstrong'?
