The panel investigating links between cycling's governing body and Lance Armstrong has postponed its first hearing because of snow in London.
    
The International Cycling Union's independent commission will now hold its procedural hearing in London on Friday instead of Tuesday.
    
The three-person panel will consider whether to introduce an amnesty or truth and reconciliation commission to persuade riders to come forward with doping information without fear of retribution.
    
The panel is investigating accusations that UCI leaders covered up suspicious doping tests given by Armstrong during his 1999-2005 run of Tour de France victories and unethically accepted donations from him totaling $125,000.
    
The panel is composed of retired British judge Philip Otton, Paralympic great Tanni-Grey Thompson and Australian lawyer Malcolm Holmes.
