Lance Armstrong faces new doping charges

LEG LUBE: Lance Armstrong, who retired from competitive cycling in 2011, confirmed on Twitter Wednesday that he was informed of the charges in a letter sent by USADA. His seven Tour de France titles could also be in jeopardy, the Washington Post first reported in a story published Wednesday on its website. The newspaper obtained a copy of a letter sent to Armstrong on Tuesday that says blood samples collected in 2009 and 2010 were “fully consistent with blood manipulation including EPO use and/or blood transfusions.” As a result of the charges, Armstrong has been immediately banned from competition in triathlons, a sport he took up after his retirement from cycling in 2011.
