Lance Armstrong has announced he will not fight the USADA charges put up against him and this means he will likely be stripped of his 7 Tour de France titles

technically he couldnt be bothered fighting them anymore

Armstrong's attorneys contend that he has "passed every drug test ever administered to him in his career - a total of 500 to 600 tests... more drug tests than any athlete in history."

LIVESTRONG Lance  8)

This one man has made a difference to more people's lives than we could ever imagine. I personally don't care if he had a bionic implant, the man is a Crusader.

People are now saying he will forever be known as a 'cheat'

I will only ever think of him as a 'hero'.
