Accuser confronts Lance Armstrong, doping inquiry continues

Posted:

An attorney representing Tyler Hamilton tells ESPN.com he felt compelled to notify federal authorities about an incident involving his client and fellow cyclist Lance Armstrong.

Hamilton, who has accused the seven-time Tour de France winner of doping, and Armstrong had a conversation in an Aspen, Colo., restaurant Saturday night. Attorney Chris Manderson says Hamilton told him Armstrong made derisive comments, while the restaurant co-owner and friend of Armstrong tells the website: "It was not a big confrontation."

Federal officials are now in their second year of investigating doping in cycling. A Los Angeles-based grand jury is hearing evidence that could lead to charges of fraud, conspiracy and drug trafficking against Armstrong and his team.
