USADA Extends Deadline For Armstrong To Talk

Posted: Updated:

AUSTIN, Tx. - Lance Armstrong is getting some more time to think about whether he wants to cooperate with the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency.
    
The agency that investigated the cyclist's performance-enhancing drug use and banned him for life from sports, had given him until Wednesday speak with investigators under oath if he wanted the ban reduced.
    
Armstrong's lawyers objected to that deadline as unreasonable and suggested they may not talk to USADA at all.
    
USADA officials now say they've agreed to give Armstrong until Feb. 20 to try to work something out.
    
Earlier on Wednesday, SCA Promotions in Dallas said it will sue Armstrong on Thursday to recover more than $12 million it paid him in bonuses for winning the Tour de France seven times.
