ADELAIDE, Australia -- The new president of cyclings world body says Lance Armstrongs lifetime ban for doping cold be reduced if he provides information which assists other doping investigations. Philadelphia Phillies Gear . Brian Cookson became UCI president in September and established the Cycling Independent Reform Commission which will examine the history of doping in professional cycling and probe allegations the UCI conspired to cover up doping activity. Cookson said the commissions terms of reference might include an agreement with the World Anti-Doping Agency and the United States Anti-Doping Agency to reduce sanctions on cyclists who co-operate with the inquiry. He said "there will be the possibility of a reduction" in Armstrongs case if he provides information which assists any investigation but stressed the UCI does not have the power to make such a deal. "It all depends on what information Lance has and what hes able to reveal," Cookson said. "Actually thats not going to be in my hands. Hes been sanctioned by USADA. "They would have to agree to any reduction in his sanction based on the validity and strength of the information that he provided. If theyre happy, if WADA are happy, then I will be happy." Cookson the three members of the commission including Australian Peter Nicholson, a specialist investigator, were insistent their investigation would be thorough and impartial. "They dont want their own personal reputation damaged by any hint of a suggestion that theyve been involved in -- lets call it a whitewash," he said. Phillies Jerseys China .
