Lance Armstrong's name is coming out of cycling's record books.
GENEVA (AP) - Lance Armstrong's name is coming out of cycling's record books.
Armstrong has been stripped of his seven Tour de France titles and banned for life by cycling's governing body following a report from the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency that accused him of leading a massive doping program on his teams.
UCI President Pat McQuaid says the federation accepted the USADA's report on Armstrong and would not appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport.
In Paris, Tour director Christian Prudhomme calls UCI's decision "totally logical," and says he no longer considers Armstrong the seven-time champion of the cycling's most-prestigious race.
USADA had concluded that Armstrong should be banned and stripped of his Tour titles for "the most sophisticated, professionalized and successful doping program that sport has ever seen" within his U.S. Postal Service and Discovery Channel teams.
