Tainted cycling legend Lance Armstrong said Wednesday he is stepping down as chairman of his Lance Armstrong Foundation, to protect the cancer-fighting charity from getting dragged down by his alleged use of performance-enhancing substances. His resignation comes a week after the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency released a report detailing its allegations, complete with testimony from 11 of Armstrong's former cycling teammates. Armstrong, who denies the doping accusations, will remain on Livestrong's board.
