Lance Armstrong's coach Bruyneel banned for 10 years

Lance Armstrong's longtime coach, Johan Bruyneel, was banned for 10 years on Tuesday for helping to organize massive doping on teams led by the disgraced cyclist.

The U.S. Anti-Doping Agency announced the verdicts of an American Arbitration Association panel against Bruyneel and two medical staff, completing its lengthy investigation which saw Armstrong banished from cycling in 2012.

Bruyneel "was at the apex of a conspiracy to commit widespread doping on the (U.S. Postal Service) and Discovery Channel teams spanning many years and many riders," USADA said in a statement.

Team doctor Pedro Celaya and trainer Jose "Pepe" Marti will serve eight-year bans.

2. Grab a club and beat a cyclist from a rival team across the knee with it?

Heck, that's what worked for Tonya Harding.
