International Cycling Union honorary president Hein Verbruggen says there was no conflict of interest when he invested in a brokerage account later linked to Lance Armstrong's team owner. Verbruggen tells The Associated Press it is "cynical" for U.S. Anti-Doping Agency CEO Travis Tygart to suggest the business relationship "stinks to high heaven." (AP Photo/Robert F. Bukaty, File)
