Verbruggen justified his defense of Armstrong during his tenure as president between 1991 and 2005 despite the fact the UCI warned him in 2001 about Armstrong's red blood-cell values being suspect.

Before a test was developed for EPO, Verbruggen oversaw the introduction of a controversial rule that simply required any rider with a hematocrit (red blood-cell count) reading of over 50 to be suspended from the sport for 15 days.

 

In an interview with another Dutch magazine last week, Verbruggen insisted the UCI did not bear any responsibility for Armstrong's cheating. "If you test someone 215 times and he is always negative, then the problem is in the test itself," he told De Muur. "I'm not responsible. I don't understand the whole fuss at all."
