AIGLE, Switzerland (AP) — The International Cycling Union has pledged to create a confidential hotline for riders to report "issues or concerns relating to doping" in the wake of the Lance Armstrong affair.

UCI President Pat McQuaid made the promise in an open letter on the organization's website.

McQuaid says riders can receive reduced penalties in exchange for cooperation, though amnesties are currently prohibited by the World Anti-Doping Code.

Former teammates of Armstrong who gave evidence to the U. S. Anti-Doping Agency said the UCI previously ignored their allegations.

McQuaid says the UCI acted "within the bounds of what is legally feasible," but acknowledges it "will take some time to build trust and confidence" in the hotline.

McQuaid says cycling's future will be defined by riders who "proved that you can compete and win clean."
