BRUSSELS (AP) — The prosecutor of the Belgian cycling federation has set a late January date for Lance Armstrong's former team leader to discuss his role in the doping scandal.

During a 2010 hearing, Johan Bruyneel had denied all doping allegations made by disgraced cyclist Floyd Landis against Armstrong and no disciplinary action was taken. Cycling federation prosecutor Jaak Fransen says last week's admission by Armstrong is a new element in the case.

He had already invited Bruyneel to explain himself after USADA charged in October that he was a central figure in Armstrong's doping programs but no date was set.

Now Fransen has sent Bruyneel an invitation with only one date and expects him to appear. It was still unclear what consequences a no-show would have.
