Back in February, the US Government decided there was not enough evidence to prosecute Lance Armstrong for using performance enhancing drugs. However, that burden is much higher than the US Anti-Doping Agency which says it is investigating Lance. Apparently, the agency says it took blood samples from Lance back in 2009 and 2010 that are consistent with blood manipulation. So, how come they waited two or three years to bring them up? It seems like every biker ever in the Tour de France who has any success has been doping. It does seem hard to believe that Lance could win all those years and be the only person out there not doping. Lance says that he has passed 500 drug tests in 25 years and never failed one.

Because of the investigation, he has been banned in competing in Triathlons until the investigation is complete. He was scheduled to compete in France next week. It's interesting how this came out right around Tour de France time. It seems like this is becoming an annual event.
