Lance Armstrong Is Stripped of His 7 Tour de France Titles [View all]

Source: NYTimes

The International Cycling Union announced on Monday that it will not appeal the United States Anti-Doping Agency’s ruling to bar Lance Armstrong for life from Olympic sports for doping and for playing an instrumental role in the team-wide doping on his Tour de France-winning cycling squads.

That decision to waive the right to take Armstrong’s case to the Court of Arbitration for Sport, the highest court in sports, formally strips Armstrong of the Tour titles he won from 1999-2005. The Amaury Sport Organization, the company that organizes the Tour de France, will erase Armstrong’s name from its record books.

...

Christian Prudhomme, the race director of the Tour, has said the organization would not give the victories to the runners-up at the races Armstrong had won because so many of those riders have been linked to doping as well. He said those Tours simply would have no official winner.

The World Anti-Doping Agency now has 21 days to decide whether it will appeal the ruling. If it does not, Armstrong’s hotly contested case is over.

Unless WADA decides to appeal the UCI's decision, it's now official: Lance Armstrong is the winner of zero Tour de France titles.
