Lance Armstrong Stripped of His Seven Tour de France Titles for Doping


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 to 2005. The Amaury Sport Organization, the
company that organizes the Tour de France, will erase Armstrong’s name from its
record books.
