What a dope

It seems that Lance Armstrong has decided not to fight the doping charges laid against him  by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency. That means they will strip him of the seven Tour de France titles and ban him from racing again.

Armstrong denies any involvement with doping and says that he passed every doping test taken during his career. The agency claim that they have blood samples consistent with doping and have testimonies from at least 10 of his team mates that state he took performance enhancing drugs.

Armstrong’s team mate, Floyd Landis says that, not only did Armstrong take drugs, he also taught others how to take them and not be caught.

So the legend of Armstrong has now been shattered. Let that be a lesson to others who follow him.
