LANCE Armstrong has vowed to take legal action over a new book that alleges he used banned drugs.

Tailwind Sports, owner and operator of Armstrong's US Postal Service team, said Armstrong, 33, would begin libel proceedings against the authors and publishers of LA Confidential: The Secrets of Lance Armstrong.

"Lance Armstrong utterly denies ever having taken any performance-enhancing drugs," a statement said. "Accordingly, Lance Armstrong has instructed his lawyers to immediately institute libel proceedings."

The book focuses on statements attributed to Emma O'Reilly, a physiotherapist who worked with Armstrong from 1998-2000. O'Reilly claims Armstrong used EPO. O'Reilly also alleges Armstrong asked her to dispose of bags with syringes after the 1998 Tour of Holland and that in May 1999, as Armstrong trained in the Pyrenees, O'Reilly said she was asked to drive to Spain to pick up drugs, which she handed to Armstrong in a car park.
