Interesting. Wonder what evidence they have to press this.

If this is true, it will be extremely disappointing. Not because I am an Armstrong fan, but because he provided inspiration to so many people battling cancer.

Hamiltons testimony is probably a major part of it.

Agreed. Plus it was nice to see an American dominate a sport that means so much to the French.

What a relief we have people, paid by the gov't no less, to save us from the likes of Lance Armstrong, Roger Clemens and Barry Bonds.

Armstrong's Response

AUSTIN, TX -- June 13, 2012 -- I have been notified that USADA, an organization largely funded by taxpayer dollars but governed only by self-written rules, intends to again dredge up discredited allegations dating back more than 16 years to prevent me from competing as a triathlete and try and strip me of the seven Tour de France victories I earned. These are the very same charges and the same witnesses that the Justice Department chose not to pursue after a two-year investigation. These charges are baseless, motivated by spite and advanced through testimony bought and paid for by promises of anonymity and immunity. Although USADA alleges a wide-ranging conspiracy extended over more than 16 years, I am the only athlete it has chosen to charge. USADA’s malice, its methods, its star-chamber practices, and its decision to punish first and adjudicate later all are at odds with our ideals of fairness and fair play.

I have never doped, and, unlike many of my accusers, I have competed as an endurance athlete for 25 years with no spike in performance, passed more than 500 drug tests and never failed one. That USADA ignores this fundamental distinction and charges me instead of the admitted dopers says far more about USADA, its lack of fairness and this vendetta than it does about my guilt or innocence.

holy frick are you kidding me? A 2 year investigation into a cyclist doping? Really? There aren't real crimes, with actual victims for us to investigate?

It would be funny if LA just completely ignored them and told them to frick off. They can't take his money and he don't stand to make any more cycling.

This has just gotten to the point of stupidity.

It's not like it really came out of the blue though.

Not that surprising, they've been alleging that for years.

Too far in the past to make any difference. People made up their minds about him a long time ago. Once the Justice Dept. couldn't find something worthwhile to charge him with, I thought this would just be put to bed.

Sucks only because the Kona Ironman was going to be epic this year. Hopefully they just strip his titles and let him race triathlon still
