AIGLE, Switzerland (AP) — Cycling’s governing body is urging Lance Armstrong to testify before its independent commission on doping.

The International Cycling Union, or UCI, says it is aware of media reports that Armstrong confessed to doping during an interview with Oprah Winfrey taped Monday.

The federation says “if these reports are true, we would strongly urge Lance Armstrong to testify to the independent commission established to investigate the allegations made against the UCI in the recent USADA reasoned decision on Lance Armstrong and the United States Postal Service team.”

The UCI says it won’t make any further statement until it has seen the interview, which is to be broadcast on Thursday night.

The UCI recently set up an independent panel to look into claims that it covered up suspicious samples from Armstrong, accepted financial donations from him and helped him avoid detection in doping tests.
