Wow. I didn't think he'd really accept the ban. I expected him to, but I honestly figured he'd take it to arbitration anyway. I really did want to hear the testimony made public.
He had no choice. Arbitration was a huge perjury trap, and would have served no purpose in any case.

Lance Armstrong: "I know who won those seven Tours.... Nobody can ever change that. Especially Travis Tygart."
And now nobody will ever be able to change the fact that he won them doping.

"From the beginning, however, this investigation has not been about learning the truth or cleaning up cycling, but about punishing me at all costs. I am a retired cyclist."

I call BS Lance, it is about cleaning up the sport and you are the biggest pile of trash being sent to the curb!

I must say, given the circumstances that press release is some damn good spinning (for the general, uneducated public). Unless the evidence comes out he will more or less survive this. *Fingers crossed*
Oh please oh please the evidence needs to come out!

@mishrak no I wasn't....:p :D

As of tonight, Greg LeMond is the only American man to win the Tour de France.
And Jan Ullrich has just moved up among the all time greats!
 
In the letter, which was also provided to the Statesman, Herman said: “You are on notice that if USADA makes any public statement claiming, without jurisdiction, to sanction Mr. Armstrong, or to falsely characterize Mr. Armstrong’s reasons for not

requesting an arbitration as anything other than a recognition of UCI jurisdiction and authority, USADA and anyone involved in the making of the statement will be liable.”:eek:

Can USADA still make the evidence public to squander the LA spin?
I hope so, this statement still keeps him in a somewhat favourable light. There's no counter statement right now from USADA or those who know the truth of his past.

Lance...



But this isn't over yet. The moment they take the step to sanction him, the new flood of lawsuits will come.

Of course, I call him a coward, because he refuses to sit and listen to anyone leveling charges against him.

The biggest narcissist of all time.

Weeks ago, this is what I thought would happen, so I am not surprised. Let him continue with groundless lawsuits...

SCA lawyers, get out your word processors!

I think he's saying he'll sue the civilly if they try to sanction him?

Cant you read?

"Lance Armstrong accepts lifetime ban, loss of Tour de France titles"

http://www.cyclingnews.com/news/lance-armstrong-accepts-lifetime-ban-loss-of-tour-de-france-titles
Read a bit further:

Armstrong, 40, said his decision did not mean he would accept USADA's sanctions. His lawyers threatened a lawsuit if USADA proceeded with punishing Armstrong, arguing that the agency must first resolve myriad disagreements with the International Cycling Union over whether a case against Armstrong should be pursued against based on the evidence.
As I have predicted...

Skrew you guys, I'm going home. To sue your pants off (later).

i called it right. he refused arbitration and said the USADA process is illegitimate. It's now down to organizations and riders to either recognize him as the legitimate winner or not. and as fans we have to make a judgment about whether the victories were rightfully his or not.
