I woke up this morning, clicked on my computer and went ape shit! ARE YOU FREAKIN' KIDDING ME! The USADA or U.S. Anit Doping Agency has stripped Lance Armstrong of his 7 Tour de France titles and banned him for life. The bogus USADA has had a burr up their butts since 1999 when they started their investigation into the greatest cyclist of all time. This group of Charlatans have finally broke Armstrong down after 13 years of unfounded accusations. "There comes a point in every man's life when he has to say, 'Enough is enough.' For me, that time is now," Armstrong said. He called the USADA investigation an "unconstitutional witch hunt.""I have been dealing with claims that I cheated and had an unfair advantage in winning my seven Tours since 1999," he said. "The toll this has taken on my family and my work for our foundation and on me leads me to where I am today finished with this nonsense." The USADA has been accusing Lance of taking the blood booster EPO and steroids as well as blood transfusions to boost his performance since 1996. Over the years Armstrong has denied these allegations as idiotic. "USADA cannot assert control of a professional international sport and attempt to strip my seven Tour de France titles," Armstrong said. "I know who won those seven Tours, my teammates know who won those seven Tours, and everyone I competed against knows who won those seven Tours." The USADA also alleges that they have written emails from Armstrong's former teammate Floyd Landis who was stripped of his 2006 Tour de France title for testing after a drug test. Landis claims that the U.S. team had a very complex doping program. USADA also said it had 10 former Armstrong teammates ready to testify against him. Other than suggesting they include Landis and Tyler Hamilton, both of whom have admitted to doping offenses, the agency has refused to say who they are or specifically what they would say.
Now let me just say this about that. The USADA has no power to just jump in and strip an athlete of his or her titles. These international titles are governed by the International Cycling Union and the International Court of Arbitration of Sport. Just because Lance Armstrong decided to for-go the sixteenth hundred appeal process he is guilty? The 40-year-old Armstrong walked away from the sport in 2011 without being charged following a two-year federal criminal investigation into many of the same accusations he faces from USADA. The Feds could not find enough evidence to send Armstrong to a trial. Now all of a sudden the USADA has come up with enough evidence to ceremoniously strip him of his hard earned titles. As you all know, Lance Armstrong fought and defeated cancer even after doctors gave his a 50% chance to live. Even after beating this horrible disease he went on to win the Tour de France. Armstrong is also known for the "Livestrong" plastic yellow wrist bracelets, which enabled him to enlist lawmakers and global policymakers to promote cancer awareness and research. His Lance Armstrong Foundation has raised nearly $500 million since its founding in 1997.
To sum it up, let this guy alone you moronic pinheads. He is retired from cycling, beat cancer and is now raising awareness and money to battle the disease he defeated. Over all the years he has competed he has never tested positive for any type of performance enhancing substance. As far as I am concerned he is squeaky clean. He is and will always be the greatest competitive cyclist to ever strap his feet onto the pedals. To the USASA I say, "Drop muck you worthless piles of monkey dung".
