Five of Lance Armstrong's former teammates given six-month bans

Five of Lance Armstrong's former teammates accept six-month bans following the United States Anti-Doping Agency's report into drug use within the US Postal Service team.

Five of Lance Armstrong's former teammates have accepted six-month bans following the United States Anti-Doping Agency's report into the use of drugs within the US Postal Service team.

George Hincapie, David Zabriskie, Tom Danielson, Christian Vande Velde and Levi Leipheimer all gave evidence during the investigation in which the USADA found that Armstrong and the USPS team ran the 'most sophisticated doping programme in cycling history'.

Their co-operation meant that they had their bans reduced from a minimum of two years.

A total of 11 of Armstrong's former teammates testified against the American.
