He says he failed to disclose it sooner because he didn't want cycling's image to be damaged. Why was the announcement so long in coming? Will he lose his title? Why are Lance Armstrong's friends and colleagues being called before a Los Angeles grand jury? Neal Rogers is Managing Editor of VeloNews .
