What’s Next for Lance Armstrong?

For cycling enthusiast, I am sure that you have known the news already regarding Lance Armstrong doping allegations. A few days back, I read from online sports news that Armstrong will be stripped of his 7 Tour de France titles if the International Cycling Union (UCI) won’t appeal the US Anti Doping Agency’s (USADA) ruling in banning him for lifetime. The bicycle racing’s world governing body is expected to announce their decision regarding the fate of the great Lance Armstrong today. 

And as many expect it to happen; the International Cycling Union announced that they are officially stripping Lance Armstrong of his 7 Tour de France titles. Then many suggests that this is an epic downfall of his illustrious career in cycling race as he became the only cyclist to have won seven Tour de France in a row, that was from 1999 up to 2005. 

So the question now is that, what’s next for Lance Armstrong after he was being stripped of his 7 Tour de France titles? Can things get any worse for him in both short and long-term situations? Knowing the fact that the company who paid for the winning prizes now wants it back and much more that they are considering legal actions. And many believe that the ban is only just the beginning. 

No matter which side are you with, it doesn’t matter anymore for it has been decided already. And even if the debate is over regarding his doping scandal but to the many fans of Lance Armstrong, the doping saga spoils the memories.
