On Monday, Lance Armstrong was stripped of his 7 Tour de France titles following a report by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency that accused him of leading a massive doping program on his teams. UCI President Pat McQuaid announced that the federation accepted the USADA's report on Armstrong and wouldn't appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport. The decision will allow the Tour de France organizers to officially remove Armstrong's name from the record books, erasing his consecutive victories from 1999 to 2005. Tour director Christian Prudhomme has said that the tour would go with whatever ruling the cycling's government body decides and will have no official winner for those years they've stripped Armstrong of.According to the Los Angeles Times, the USADA, in a report, said that Armstrong and his teams used steroids, the blood booster EPO and blood transfusions. The report included statements from 11 former teammates who testified against Armstrong.The report from the USADA declared that the doping scandal was "the most sophisticated, professionalized, and successful doping program that sport has ever seen." On Sunday, Armstrong greeted over 4,000 cyclists at his Livestrong charity's fundraiser event in Texas, as he told the crowd that it's been a "very difficult" few weeks."I've been better, but I've also seen worse," Armstrong told the crowd.
