Mikkelsen said the L’Equipe story lacked hard evidence and as such should have been handled with caution.
According to Danish government website, Denmark.dk, Mikkelsen is to contact WADA president Dick Pound and expand on his opinion that rushing to accuse Lance Armstrong over disputed drug tests on five-year old urine was a bad move.
"Such a statement should only be made if there is a legal basis for it. That’s why I think Dick Pound’s statement was unwise."
Pound had said the L’Equipe story ‘proved’ there was a "very high probability" that Armstrong used EPO in 1999, a claim denied by Armstrong.
Mikkelsen said preferred to wait for a report from WADA looking at all the evidence before he offered his opinion.
"Before I have received the report, I won’t comment further on the case. I will contact Dick Pound, however, and inform him about my view on the matter," said Mikkelsen.
