Fahey said it would be “very, very helpful if that information was handed over” to the US Anti-Doping Agency. That agency has said it will continue its own probe into doping in cycling.

Federal prosecutors dropped the investigation into Armstrong on Friday, ending a nearly two-year effort aimed at determining whether the world’s most famous cyclist and his teammates joined in a doping program during his greatest years.

“There has been significant evidence taken on anti-doping areas, on what may have occurred in the way of doping. It would be very, very helpful if that information was handed over,” Fahey said of the US probe that was led by federal agent Jeff Novitzky, who also investigated baseball players Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens.
