At least 15 more cyclists have been linked to Armstrong’s banned Italian sport doctor in an intricate scheme of money laundering, tax evasion, and widespread doping. Former Giro d'Italia winners Michele Scarponi and Denis Menchov, and this year’s Olympic champion Alexandre Vinokourov, are under investigation for doping under the supervision of Dr. Michele Ferrari, Gazzetta dello Sport reported . . .
