URGENT ¥¥¥ Armstrong 'wants to be part of solution' to doping: USADA

US Anti-Doping Agency chief Travis Tygart said Wednesday that Lance Armstrong wants to help clean up cycling, and the agency has extended the deadline for the confessed cheat to cooperate with it.

"We have been in communication with Mr. Armstrong and his representatives and we understand that he does want to be part of the solution and assist in the effort to clean up the sport of cycling," Tygart said in a statement.

"We have agreed to his request for an additional two weeks to work on details to hopefully allow for this to happen."
