Milan - Lance Armstrong's former physician has denied accusations that he masterminded the doping habits of the cycling great and other riders.

Dr. Michele Ferrari was banned for life in July by the US Anti-Doping Agency.

On Wednesday, Ferrari released a statement on his website in which he denies the USADA charges and tries to discredit the testimonies of key witnesses Floyd Landis, Tyler Hamilton, Christian Vande Velde, George Hincapie, Levi Leipheimer and Tom Danielson.
