Lance Armstrong Stripped of 7 Tour de France Titles

Lance Armstrong has been stripped of his seven Tour de France titles and banned from cycling for life, the International Cycling Union announced Monday.

The UCI decision comes after the recent release of a United States Anti-Doping Agency report that said Armstrong used doping to help win Tour de France titles from 1999 to 2005, and coerced his cycling teammates to do the same.

The company that organizes the Tour de France will now remove Armstrong’s name from its record books, The New York Times reported.
