AUSTIN (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — Lance Armstrong has given sworn testimony naming several people he says knew about his performance-enhancing drug use. He insists he didn’t pay anyone or any organization to keep his doping secret.

Armstrong’s testimony came in written answers to questions in a lawsuit that was settled in late 2013. The documents were filed this week in a federal whistle-blower lawsuit over his team’s sponsorship with the U.S. Postal Service that could result in fines over $100 million.

Armstrong says those who provided him with performance-enhancing drugs included trainer Pepi Marti, Dr. Pedro Celaya, Dr. Luis Garcia del Moral and Dr. Michele Ferrari, all of whom were part of his teams or personal cycling entourage.

Armstrong says team manager Johan Bruyneel assisted his doping. Each has previously denied aiding Armstrong’s doping.

Since admitting doping, Armstrong has been sued by a number of companies, including SCA Promotions. The Dallas company was refusing to pay Armstrong $12 million in prize money for winning the Tour De France three years in a row.
