Lance Armstrong faces new doping charges
The seven-time Tour de France winner is in danger of being stripped of his titles, as he faces new allegations from the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency. In a 15-page letter obtained by The Washington Post, the USADA claims to have blood samples from 2009 and 2010 that are "fully consistent with blood manipulation." Armstrong, who retired from professional cycling in 2011, has never tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs and insists the charges are bogus.
