A Texas judge has ordered Lance Armstrong to reveal who knew about his doping, possibly including his ex-wife and two former UCI presidents by the end of September. Travis County District Judge Tim Sulak gave the order last week as part of a lawsuit being filed against the cyclist by Acceptance Insurance Holding.

Acceptance is attempting to recover $3 million in bonuses it paid Armstrong from 1999 to 2001 by proving that Armstrong and his associates committed fraud. The company aims to find when UCI Presidents Hein Verbruggen and Pat McQuaid along with ex-wife Kristin Armstrong learned about his doping, the Associated Press reports.

In the USADA report on Armstrong, three of his former teammates testified that Kristin Armstrong knew about his doping. The trial is set for next April.
