Lance Armstrong is in hot water yet again. The US anti-doping agency has brought forth new accusations of doping against the former cyclist and seven time Tour de France winner. It claims it has proof that the American was involved in a massive doping conspiracy from 1998 to 2011, dates which coincide with the Texan’s 7 tour de France victories. The Washington Post published the letter the USADA addressed to Lance Armstrong in which the agency explains having collected “blood samples that were consistent with blood manipulation including EPO use and/or blood transfusions.”
If confirmed, these new revelations could see the American cyclist stripped of several Tour de France victories. Armstrong, who’s been engaging in high-level triathlons has been banned from competitions. In a statement, he rejects the doping allegations. According to him, the USADA’s accusations are baseless. He says he passed over 500 drug tests. Something tells us this story isn’t going away anytime soon.
