Tour De France
The Australian city of Adelaide has stripped Lance Armstrong of its highest honor — the key to the city — following the removal of his seven Tour de France titles.
The UCI said Armstrong and “all other affected riders” in the case should return their prize money. That amounts to almost $4 million in Tour money from Armstrong.
Monday brought the news that Lance Armstrong officially lost his Tour de France titles, all seven of them, and he is now banned from competitive cycling for life. Not a shock.
Having won seven Tour de France titles is no longer part of Lance Armstrong’s Twitter profile.
Lance Armstrong was stripped of his seven Tour de France titles and banned by cycling’s governing body after a report that accused him of leading a doping program on his teams.
Lance Armstrong greeted about 4,300 cyclists at his Livestrong charity’s fund-raiser bike ride Sunday, then retreated into privacy as cycling officials get set to announce if they will appeal his lifetime ban and loss of seven Tour de France titles ordered by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency.
Lance Armstrong introduced himself as a seven-time Tour de France champion at a cancer conference Wednesday.
Lance Armstrong’s reputation may be in tatters but in the eyes of corporate and individual donors, his charity still wears an unsullied yellow jersey.
Armstrong, who retired a year ago, said Thursday that he would no longer challenge USADA. He denied again that he ever took banned substances in his career.
Never one to back away from a fight, Lance Armstrong is finally giving in and the cost of quitting is steep. His seven Tour de France titles could be gone as soon as Friday.
Lance Armstrong’s fight with U.S. anti-doping officials is going before a federal judge in Austin. He faces a lifetime ban from the sport and could be stripped of his titles if found guilty.
Lance Armstrong’s supporters are turning to Capitol Hill for help after the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency has launched its own investigation of the cycling champion.
