Lance Armstrong to Face Doping Charges from the USADA

The U.S. Anti-Doping Agency will bring charges against a cycling legend. Lance Armstrong, the seven-time Tour de France Champion, is being charged with doping by the federal agency in which they are questioning his victories in the famous race.

Armstrong retired from cycling in 2011 could potentially face a lifetime ban from the sport if he is found to have to used any performance-enhancing drugs. The charges brought by the governmental organization come after federal prosecutors investigated Armstrong for two years without ever indicting him.

In a press release on his website, Armstrong asserted his innocence once again 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.”

There is no timetable on hearings for this charge, but Armstrong plans to compete in the June 24th Ironman France to earn points for his status in the Kona Pro Rankings.
