Lance Armstrong Stripped Of All Seven Tour de France Titles
Over the summer it came out that the US Anti Doping Agency was going after Lance Armstrong in a big way. It seems as they have won the fight. Lance Armstrong may be the most scrutinized athlete in all of sports. No matter what he did, there was always talk of him cheating. He has given up constantly defending himself, and has been stripped of all seven of his Tour de France championships.
The International Cycling Union has wiped Armstrong out of the record books completely, and had some very harsh word for him as well.
Lance Armstrong has no place in cycling and he deserves to be forgotten in cycling
- Pat McQuaid President International Cycling Union
The director of the Tour de France has gone as far to say that he would like Armstrong to pay back all of his prize money.
