I do t think they really can. The organizers of the Tour can strip the winnings I think, or the UCI. USADA does not have the jurisdiction."Laxguy" said:How can an American institution strip any athlete of titles or medals from a French or international competition?
That's my contention. So it would seem erroneous to say the bloody USADA "stripped him". They may have pressured others, certainly.dpeters11 said:I do t think they really can. The organizers of the Tour can strip the winnings I think, or the UCI. USADA does not have the jurisdiction.
ASPEN, Colo. - Lance Armstrong says he's more at peace now than he has been in a decade.
In his first interview since the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency disciplined Armstrong with a lifetime ban from professional cycling and vacated his seven Tour de France titles, he said, "Nobody needs to cry for me. I'm going to be great."
No way - let them eat cake.Stewart Vernon said:More interesting to me... I remember all the anti-French stuff when France kept saying they thought Lance and others were doping... people said they were just jealous.
I hope France gets an apology out of this too.
