The bicycle maker that sponsors Lance Armstrong’s racing team is cooperating with federal authorities investigating the seven-time Tour de France champion and others in cycling, a company spokesman said Friday.
Investigators requested documents from Trek Bicycle Corp. early in July and company officials complied fully, said Bill Mashek, a spokesman for the Waterloo, Wis.-based company. He declined to say what those documents were. “One of the things investigators are seeking is for us not to comment,” he said.
Likely line of inquiry: Were custom Trek bikes delivered to Armstrong re-sold to fund doping operation?
