AIGLE, Switzerland (AP) — The head of cycling's governing body says the delay in receiving the U.S. evidence in Lance Armstrong's doping case is a "cause for concern."

Cycling body UCI complained Thursday about the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency's "shifting deadline" in turning over the files that led it to wipe out Armstrong's seven Tour de France titles and ban him for life.

USADA said Wednesday it would send its "reasoned decision" to the UCI by Oct. 15. The files had previously been expected to be turned over by the end of September.

The UCI says it "wonders why it is taking USADA so long to provide its reasoned decision and case file."

UCI President Pat McQuaid says "USADA's continued failure to produce the decision is now a cause for concern."
