Sheryl Crow Allegedly Watched Lance Armstrong Get Illegal Transfusion
"Rather than try to hide the transfusion from her, Armstrong was completely open about it," it reads. "He trusted that Crow would have no desire to tell the press or anyone else about the team's doping program. He explained that it was simply part of the sport — that all cyclists were doing the same thing."
While Deadspin reports Crow was contacted by investigators as a grand jury considered a federal indictment against Armstrong, the New York Daily News claims that she was in fact interviewed as part of the doping investigation and stayed with Armstrong and teammates in Girona, Spain, which was a "distribution point for performance-enhancing drugs and a place to store bags of blood before reinfusing it at big races."
Crow was originally subpoenaed to testify, but the new book reports that she was given a written agreement protecting her from prosecution if she revealed everything she knew about Armstrong's situation. more on this story
