Lance Armstrong is No Longer 7 Time Tour Champion

What do people think about this verdict?  Please weigh in!

From WSJ.com:

“Lance Armstrong was stripped of his record seven Tour de France titles late Thursday after he refused to fight allegations that he used performance-enhancing drugs.

Thursday, Mr. Armstrong notified the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency that he wouldn’t fight the charges the agency brought against him in June, a move that, according to USADA, immediately strips him of all of his athletic titles going back to Aug. 1, 1998, roughly a year before his first Tour de France victory. USADA said Mr. Armstrong is also banned immediately from competing in Olympic and other elite-level sports for the rest of his life.”

    Do they think he was planning on the Olympics for 2016? So who really won all those 7 Tour de France titles? Oh well…..

    • No, I doubt he planning to ride at the Olympics but he was still competing in professional triathalons and mountain bikes races which I guess he can no longer do. The real winner of those races is most likely a mystery because all those top riders were doping. So, Lance was probably still the best among the doping riders.
