The US Anti-Doping Agency has charged that Lance Armstrong, the champion cyclist who holds seven Tour de France victories use performance enhancing drugs and could be stripped of his medals as reported in dated 14th of June 2012.

Lance Armstrong had taken up triathlons after retiring from cycling and, has been already banned from taking part in this event.

He has reiterated that he is innocent and is being framed – in the last 25-years that he has been into outdoor sports, he has passed more than 500 drug tests without any blemish. Hence, the charges are baseless.

However, the charges are quite serious and appear to be a major conspiracy.

It seems Armstrong and five others had been doing it from 1998 to 2005.

They used EPO, blood transfusions, testosterone and masking agents, and that Armstrong was the leader - he used to distribute and administer the drugs to other cyclists.
