Lance Armstrong Still Under Drug Investigation

Although he was cleared of doping charges in 2006, Lance Armstrong is in deep shiz again!

Ever since former teammate Floyd Landis accused Lance of systematic doping, federal prosecutors are on the case. According to reports, they have other cyclists who are backing up the claims.

One of Armstrong's former teammates told several investigators that cheating ran rampant among the United States team and Lance supported it.

Armstrong's agent and manager would not comment. His lawyer, Bryan D. Daly, believes that the other cyclists are lying, saying:

"They just want to incriminate Lance Armstrong and that's my concern. The bottom line is, if you take away the soap opera and look at the scientific evidence, there is nothing."

It's reported that more cyclists will meet with the grand jury.

Yikes!

Fellow Cycler Claims Lance Armstrong Used Drugs!

Since cyclist Floyd Landis admitted to performance-enhancing drug use, he has come forward to say that he saw his competitors engage in the same behavior.

"Rather than go into the entire detail of every single time I've seen it, yes," said Landis. "I saw Lance Armstrong using drugs."

Wowsa! He also claims that Lance used those same drugs throughout his career AND transfused his own blood, which gives athletes more endurance by increasing their red blood count.

"Landis is a confessed perjurer and he is a liar, and I think, as Lance said … when you taste milk to see if it's sour, you take a first taste and you don't have to drink the whole carton to know it's all sour," said Armstrong's attorney, Tim Herman.

Landis said:

"I don't feel guilty at all about having doped. I did what I did because that's what we [cyclists] did and it was a choice I had to make after 10 years or 12 years of hard work to get there, and that was a decision I had to make to make the next step. My choices were, do it and see if I can win, or don't do it and I tell people I just don't want to do that, and I decided to do it.

When asked if he thought Armstrong was a fraud, he added:

"Well, it depends on what your definition of fraud is. I mean it, look, if he didn't win the Tour, someone else that was doped would have won the Tour. In every single one of those Tours."

It sounds like no one even had a fighting chance.

Lance Armstrong has announced that this year's Tour de France will be his last. He made the announcement on his Twitter, the place where all major announcements are now made:

"Yes, this will be final Tour de France. It's been a great ride. Looking forward to 3 great weeks."

You had a good run, bb. Or we guess, cycle.

Seven wins while also beating cancer! That's nothing to scoff at!

Here's hoping for an even eighth win on your final race!
