Lance Armstrong finished his last Tour de France on Sunday. He finished in 23rd place, about 40 minutes behind the winner Alberto Contador Spain.
Now it appears Lance Armstrong’s next appearance will be in front of a Federal grand jury and that’s too bad.
With seven victories in a row from 1999-2005 in the Tour de France, people had their doubts that Armstrong could do something this amazing without cheating, but Lance Armstrong never failed a drug test. Not one.
The allegations continue today with some of his former teammates claiming Armstrong used performance enhancing drugs, but Lance Armstrong never failed a drug test.
To me it is sour grapes. It is also a total waste of time and money for the Federal government (U.S. Attorney) to even be involved. Doesn’t our government have more important things to do?
Thanks to Lance Armstrong, cycling was put on the map in the United States. A cancer survivor himself, Armstrong continues to raise awareness about the disease (not to mention millions of dollars for research).
Thank you Lance Armstrong and best of luck in all your future endeavors.
