AUSTIN — Lance Armstrong talked last week with the head of the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency in the hope of potentially reducing his lifetime ban from the sports he loves, The Associated Press has learned. Armstrong and Travis Tygart met for six hours, according to a person with knowledge of the meeting who spoke on condition of anonymity, because the discussion was meant to remain private. The meeting was first reported by The New York Times.

The meeting was the first between Armstrong and Tygart since late 2012. The two have publicly sparred since the agency’s investigation into doping by Armstrong and his U.S. Postal Service team led to Armstrong’s ban and his being stripped of his seven Tour de France titles.

DENVER  — Disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong hit two parked cars with an SUV after a night of partying in Colorado but agreed to let his longtime girlfriend take the blame to avoid national attention, police reports show.

Aspen police cited Armstrong with failing to report an accident and speeding weeks after the Dec. 28 accident, but only after his girlfriend, Anna Hansen, acknowledged lying for him.

Armstrong declined immediate comment on Tuesday. His attorney, Pamela Mackey, didn’t immediately return a call.

"I didn't live a lot of lies. But I did live one big one. It's different, I guess. Maybe not."

So said disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong to filmmaker Alex Gibney early this year, just hours after he confessed to Oprah that he'd doped during his seven wins of the Tour de France.

Update: Omar Martinez, 27, was the overall winner at this year's Austin Marathon. He finished the 26.2 miles in just over 2 hours and 35 minutes. Kyle Smith, 26, was the fastest finisher from Austin. He came in 4th place overall.

Thirty-one year old Mariko Neveu of Austin took first place among the women. She finished in just over 2 hours and 55 minutes.
