New Drug Charges for Lance Armstrong

Lance Armstrong fired back at the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) after it brought formal charges against the seven-time Tour de France winner earlier this week, which could put the American’s tour wins at risk. Armstrong called the moved a "vendetta" in a post on his website. Upon the charges being filed, Armstrong has immediately been banned from competing in triathlons, events in which he has recently made a foray. The 15-page letter from USADA claims that blood it collected from Armstrong in 2009 and 2010 was “fully consistent with blood manipulation including EPO use and/or blood transfusions.” Armstrong scoffed at the charges in a post on his website published Wednesday, writing that they are “baseless” and “motivated by spite.”
