Armstrong, who has denied the allegations, has changed his personal description to “Raising my five kids. Fighting Cancer. Swim, bike, run and golf whenever I can.” It previously read: “Father of 5 amazing kids, 7-time Tour de France winner, full time cancer fighter, part time triathlete.”
The profile change comes in the wake of the International Cycling Union’s decision to take away the seven Tour de France titles Armstrong held after the United States Anti-Doping Agency issued a report citing “conclusive and undeniable proof” of Armstrong and his teammates use of performance enhancing drugs.
The report includes testimony from 26 people, financial payments and emails the agency says details “the most sophisticated, professionalized and successful doping program that sport has ever seen.”
Armstrong’s lawyer, Timothy Herman renounced the report stating it was “a one-sided hatchet job . . . rehashing old, disproved, unreliable allegations based largely on axe-grinders, serial perjurers, coerced testimony, sweetheart deals and threat-induced stories.”
The 41 year-old who stopped fighting the agency because he said it was “one-sided” was dropped by his long-time sponsors. Nike, Trek Bicycles, Anheuser Busch and 24 Fitness Center are just some of the corporations bailing on Armstrong. He also stepped down from his charity organization LiveStrong.
