According to
This news has stunned his fans and supporters. Sports critics and media personnel are eager to find out about the details. The magnitude of the statement of the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency is such that, almost five hundred thousand people have already searched for updates regarding Lance Armstrong and his doping conspiracy.
Lance Armstrong has decided that he will not go to arbitration to settle charges brought by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency. In fact he succumbed to the pressure and said "enough is enough". He also refused to recognize USADA's authority to sanction him. This immediate ban was a resultant of his decision to skip arbitration. Not only a ban would be levied on Lance Armstrong, he will have to forfeit, all results from Aug. 1, 1998, till date, which include the seven consecutive Tour titles won from 1999 through 2005.
According to the USA Today, The anti-doping agency has accused Armstrong of using EPO, blood transfusions, testosterone, cortisone and HGH during his career. Furthermore there is substantial evidence available with them that shows Lance Armstrong manipulated his blood with EPO or blood transfusions during his comeback to cycling in the 2009 Tour.
Apparently the agency has substantial evidence that Armstrong was involved in several anti-doping rule violations.

While the investigations are underway and more reports are to be released, fans are shocked and bewildered as to why these allegations have come out now.
Quite astonishingly Lance’s team manager, who hasled Armstrong to all seven tour titles faces similar doping sanctions. He has posted a statement on his website that reaffirms the possibility of Lance being guilty this time. Johan said, "Today, I'm disappointed for Lance and for cycling in general that things have reached a stage where Lance feels that he has had enough and is no longer willing to participate in USADA's campaign against him. Lance has never withdrawn from a fair fight in his life so his decision today underlines what an unjust process this has been”
