Disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong has expressed his gratitude towards the Cycling Independent Reform Commission for publishing details regarding drug-taking in the sport.
The CIRC released a report on Monday claiming that doping is ongoing in cycling, while also detailing incidents from the 1990s and 2000s.
Armstrong was one of 174 people interviewed by a three-man panel and the report claimed that the International Cycling Union "protected" the American, who was later found guilty of taking performance-enhancing drugs during his career.
However, the report rubbished suggestions that Armstrong had paid the cycling body to cover up his illegal activity.
In response to the published details, Armstrong wrote on his official website: "I am grateful to CIRC for seeking the truth and allowing me to assist in that search. I am deeply sorry for many things I have done. However, it is my hope that revealing the truth will lead to a bright, dope-free future for the sport I love.
"[It] will allow all young riders emerging from small towns throughout the world in years to come to chase their dreams without having to face the lose-lose choices that so many of my friends, teammates and opponents faced.
"I hope that all riders who competed and doped can feel free to come forward and help the tonic of truth heal this great sport."
Armstrong was stripped of his seven Tour de France titles when his doping past was exposed in 2012.
