Lance Armstrong is strongly denying allegations in a new book that he used performance-enhancing substances in his pursuit of Tour de France championships. A former member of Armstrong's racing team says in the book that Armstrong asked her to dispose of a bag containing used syringes. Armstrong insists he has not used drugs, and his lawyers say they'll sue the book's authors. Hear NPR's Tom Goldman.
