The UCI have admitted they accepted a donation of more than $100,000 from Armstrong in 2002, but have strongly denied it was connected to any cover-up of a positive test.
Tyler Hamilton, Armstrong's former US Postal team-mate, has testified that Armstrong bragged that he had managed to have a positive finding covered up.
