The new week is not starting on the right foot for Lance Armstrong as UCI President Pat McQuaid announced that the federation accepted the USADA’s report on Armstrong and has decided to strip Armstrong of all seven Tour de France titles. This comes after allegations of drug abuse of which Armstrong still denies.

In addition to stripping him of the titles, the cycling governing body has further decided to ban Lance Armstrong for life. Armstrong’s name will be erased from all the record books, and his consecutive wins of The Tour de France are now no longer valid.

According to ESPN.com, USADA said Armstrong should be banned and stripped of his Tour titles for “the most sophisticated, professionalized and successful doping program that sport has ever seen” within his U.S. Postal Service and Discovery Channel teams. The USADA report said Armstrong and his teams used steroids, the blood booster EPO and blood transfusions. The report included statements from 11 former teammates who testified against Armstrong.”

Lance Armstrong denies the allegations, but has decided to not appeal the court’s decision. Armstrong has consistently argued that the USADA system was rigged against him, calling the agency’s effort a “witch hunt.”
