By announcing he will no longer fight his investigation by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency – which accused him of using, possessing, trafficking and giving to others performance-enhancing drugs, as well as covering up doping violations – seven-time Tour de France champ Lance Armstrong is being stripped of his titles and prizes going back to Aug. 1, 1998 and banned for life from competing.
"I will no longer address this issue, regardless of the circumstances," Armstrong, a survivor of testicular cancer, said in a statement.

Lance Armstrong has quit the race.
The seven-time Tour de France victor announced Thursday he will no longer fight his investigation by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency – meaning he will be banned for life from ever competing again, reports CNN.
Late Thursday, the USADA confirmed it will also strip Armstrong of all results since Aug. 1, 1998, reports USA Today.
"There comes a point in every man's life when he has to say, 'Enough is enough.' For me, that time is now," Armstrong, 40, said in a statement.

"We met at Hyde, of all places," Camila McConaughey tells Access Hollywood, when asked how she first encountered her future husband, Matthew.

Armstrong, as he has in the past, vigorously denied the charges.

Lance Armstrong is back in hot water.
Despite being cleared of doping charges back in 2006, Armstrong, 38, is being investigated again for systematic doping.
In May, former teammate Floyd Landis (who admitted to doping himself and received a two-year ban from the sport) accused Armstrong and other cyclists of using performance-enhancing drugs. He claimed that the sport's biggest star also encouraged the practice among teammates.

Not everybody is impressed with Lance Armstrong's cycling comeback.
The 37-year-old seven-time Tour de France winner raced to a respectable third-place finish in the grueling event this year, but when he went to get his trophy Sunday, son Maxwell slept through the ceremony.
Of course, Max is not yet 2 months old.
Born June 4, Max is the first child for Lance and girlfriend Anna Hansen. Armstrong is also dad to 9-year-old Luke and 7-year-old twins Isabelle and Grace with ex-wife Kristin Richard. All four children were on hand to witness the ceremony, each wearing a splash of yellow – including Max, who sported shoes in the signature hue of a Tour de France winner.

Recovering from a broken collarbone, Lance Armstrong briefly surged into the lead on Saturday, the first day of the legendary cyclist's comeback on the Tour de France. "Stage One done," the 37-year-old, seven-time Tour champion Tweeted after finishing the first stage time trials. "Started conservative and we tried to come home strong."
The new dad started 18th out of 180 riders, with all eyes on him to see if he still has what it takes to dominate the grueling race. On a hot, muggy day, he sped his new Trek TT bike through 9.6 miles of winding hills and roads in Monaco in 20 minutes, 13 seconds, for a while the best time of the day. Other riders later clocked better times, but Armstrong seemed pleased with his effort. "I was a little all over the place," he blogged. "It was up, flat, it was down, it was a technical course. But I think, overall, I felt good."

Time to get a child seat for that racing bike.
Lance Armstrong and girlfriend Anna Hansen welcomed a 7 lb., 5 oz, 20-inch-long baby boy named Max, the pro cyclist announced on his Twitter page Thursday night – or, rather, the little guy announced it himself.
"Wassup, world? My name is Max Armstrong and I just arrived. My Mommy is healthy and so am I!" says the post, which includes a photo of the baby in a cap and sticking his tongue out.
