OSLO, Norway (AP) — Another former teammate of Lance Armstrong has admitted using banned performance-enhancing substances.

Norwegian rider Steffen Kjaergaard told reporters in Oslo that he had used EPO and cortisone.

Kjaergaard rode with Armstrong in the U.S. Postal Service team in 2000 and 2001. He says he wasn't aware of any of his teammates using banned substances, "but I assume there were others."

On Monday, Armstrong was stripped of his seven Tour de France titles by the International Cycling Union.
