Cycling • The head of the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency wants Lance Armstrong to come forward with information detailing the alleged complicity of cycling's governing body in his doping.

Travis Tygart appeared at a French government Senate hearing Thursday to discuss ways to improve the fight against doping.

Cycling body UCI has been accused of covering up suspicious samples from Armstrong, accepting financial donations from him and helping him avoid detection in doping tests.

During the Senate hearing, Tygart said he had "evidence of the UCI's involvement in this affair."

MLS may announce stadium in Queens

Soccer • Major League Soccer hopes to announce plans in four to six weeks for a stadium in Queens for a 20th team.

The league and New York City have been involved in negotiations to build a stadium on a 10-acre site in the Flushing Meadows park. A team there would start play in 2016 and be rivals of the New York Red Bulls, who play in Harrison, N.J.

MLS commissioner Don Garber told the Associated Press Sports Editors on Thursday that "If we get this done, it will be in Flushing Meadow Park. There is no Plan B."
