About Lance Armstrong

Back in the late 1990’s and early 2000’s, Lance Armstrong was one of the most well known cyclists in the world since he won the Tour de France multiple times and becoming the idol of millions of cycling fans.

Armstrong had been the subject of doping allegations ever since winning the 1999 Tour de France. In 2012, a United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) investigation concluded that Armstrong had used performance-enhancing drugs over the course of his career and named him as the ringleader of "the most sophisticated, professionalized and successful doping program that sport has ever seen." Armstrong chose not to contest the charges, citing the potential toll on his family. As a result, he was stripped of all of his achievements from August 1998 onward, including his seven Tour de France titles. He also received a lifetime ban from all sports that follow the World Anti-Doping Code—ending his competitive career. The International Cycling Union (UCI) upheld USADA's decisionand decided that his stripped wins would not be allocated to other riders. Armstrong chose not to appeal the decision to the Court of Arbitration for Sport.
