Undated-- Lance Armstrong challenged the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency to name names and show what it had on him.

On Wednesday, it did.

The anti-doping group has released a report on its case against Armstrong -- a point-by-point roadmap of the lengths Armstrong went to in winning seven Tour de France titles USADA has ordered taken away.

Over nearly 200 pages, USADA details cheating by Armstrong's teams and names 11 former teammates -- George Hincapie, Tyler Hamilton and Floyd Landis among them -- as key witnesses.

The report accuses Armstrong of depending on performance-enhancing drugs to fuel his victories and "more ruthlessly, to expect and to require that his teammates" do the same.

Armstrong did not fight the USADA charges, but insists he never cheated.
