Resolving Armstrong’s case is necessary

Anne Gripper, an ex-anti doping chief of International Cycling Union (UCI), says that she is happy with the investigations made by USADA regarding Lance Armstrong’s case and supports the ban on him.

Gripper played a crucial role in introducing the blood passport system. She also took some major steps to protect the sport of cycling from going into wrong direction, as you would remember.

Armstrong Stripped of Titles and Banned for Life

American cycling legend Lance Armstrong will indeed be stripped of the record seven titles that he won at the Grand Tour de France and will also be banned from professional cycling for the rest of his life after he decided not to fight the charges of doping leveled against him by the US Anti Doping Agency.

Armstrong released a statement on Thursday night that he will not challenge the allegations of doping against him at the end of the deadline period for him to formally challenge the allegations.
