    US Anti-Doping Agency will strip Lance Armstrong of his titles and ban him from competitive cycling

    Seven-time Tour de France champion Lance Armstrong said he would no longer fight doping charges by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency, which quickly said it would strip him of his titles and ban him from competitive cycling.

    Yeah, not sure what to make of this. I'd be very dissapointed if he had been involved in doping etc, however, no-one would give up 7 Tour de France titles....ever... You know what they say about smoke and fire

    *snff* *snffff* Anyone catch that? Ah, the tainted smell of a witch hunt, that's it.

    Not that it matters, it's just grown men racing around on bikes.

    This sucks. I understand his frustration. He probably decided they will never leave him alone, as I understand it they have been hounding him for nearly 15 years. He has passed test after test. At some point enough just becomes enough. He is a household name. The world knows what he did. He has spent a lot of time and energy working on charities. He has retired. The man survived testicular cancer. Bluntly, he probably has other crap to deal with instead of constantly defending himself from this never-ending BS.
