AMSTERDAM (AP) — Former UCI president Hein Verbruggen has questioned Lance Armstrong’s credibility after the American rider implicated the Dutchman in covering up doping at the 1999 Tour de France.

In a text message to NOS television network in the Netherlands, Verbruggen writes “Since when do people believe Lance Armstrong?”

The Dutch official has not replied to messages from The Associated Press.

Armstrong told Britain’s Daily Mail that Verbruggen insisted “we’ve got to come up with something” to explain the American’s positive tests for a banned corticosteroid.

A backdated prescription for a saddle sores cream was accepted, allowing Armstrong to continue racing and win his first Tour.
