Lance Armstrong to Face Federal Indictment for Alleged Doping
The Washington Post reports Lance Armstrong, who has beat cancer and won the Tour de France a record seven times, will be now facing doping charges. The charges come after the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency completed a two year investigation on the legendary cyclist.
In a letter the USADA incriminates Armstrong, five associates and his team manager Johan Bruyneel. It says they, “engaged in a massive doping conspiracy from 1998-2011.” Their findings cite the testimonies of more than ten cyclists.
Armstrong is adamant about his innocence saying, “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.”
