Lance Armstrong is No Longer 7 Time Tour Champion

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


“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.
