The Daily News says a grand jury has subpoenaed documents from Trek, Lance Armstrong’s longtime sponsor, regarding reports Armstrong’s team sold his bikes for money to support doping.

The Times reports “a significant step” — which is about as emphatic as the Gray Lady gets — in the Floyd Landis allegations against Armstrong and others re endemic doping on the professional cycling tour.

It looks like investigators are adopting the classic anti-corruption strategy: Follow the money.


Officials involved in the case said the investigators were especially interested in the people who helped finance the Postal Service squad, which included Armstrong.
