Armstrong Vs USADA

Lance Armstrong has struck back at the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA), which has formally charged the Seven-time Tour de France winner with doping offences for a period between 1998 and 2011, by launching his own legal action against the body accusing them of offering ‘corrupt inducements’ to witnesses against him and operating a ‘kangaroo court’. The crux, it would seem, is that former team mates (ten in total) are allegedly being coerced into giving evidence against Armstrong, fearing that both their careers and reputations could suffer should they refuse to do so.


In addition to taking legal recourse Armstrong has continued to be vociferous across social media, recently posting on facebook, ‘So let me get this straight….come in and tell USADA exactly what they wanted to hear in exchange for immunity, anonymity and the opportunity to continue to race the biggest event in cycling. This isn’t about USADA wanting to clean up cycling rather its just plain ol’ selective prosecution that reeks of vendetta…’
