Lance Armstrong: Banned From cycling by the USADA and Stripped of ALL Tour de France titles
Lance Armstrong was stripped of his record-breaking 7 Tour de France titles after he announced he will no longer fight drug charges from the US Anti-Doping Agency (USADA), that he used performance-enhancing drugs.
In a statement, the 43-yr-old cancer survivor said he would no longer fight the charges brought against him in June.
“There comes a point in every man’s life when he has to say, “Enough is enough.” For me, that time is now. I have been dealing with claims that I cheated and had an unfair advantage in winning my seven Tours since 1999. Over the past three years, I have been subjected to a two-year federal criminal investigation followed by Travis Tygart’s unconstitutional witch hunt. The toll this has taken on my family, and my work for our foundation and on me leads me to where I am today – finished with this nonsense.”
