British judge Philip Otton, Paralympic great Tanni-Grey Thompson and Australian lawyer Malcolm Holmes will investigate the governing body’s links to the Lance Armstrong doping case.
Lance Armstrong’s cancer fighting charity has formally dropped him from its name and will officially be known as the Livestrong Foundation.
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 is stepping down as chairman of his Livestrong cancer fighting charity to help it limit the damage from the doping scandal that has snared the former champion cyclist.
Lance Armstrong can never ride again in the world’s top cycling races. His attempt to win elite triathlons in middle age is over. He even got booted from the Chicago Marathon.
Lance Armstrong said that he wanted to see the names of his accusers in his doping case. So, the USADA gave him 26 names, including those of 11 of his former teammates.
The 41-year-old Armstrong retired in 2011. Armstrong won the Tour de France each year from 1999 to 2005, but USADA said those victories are now erased when it banned him.
Marathon officials said Armstrong didn’t formally register for the race, but noted that USADA’s ruling bars him from entering races sanctioned by USA Track & Field.
Lance Armstrong introduced himself as a seven-time Tour de France champion at a cancer conference Wednesday.
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.
