Fed up by “one-sided and unfair” – Lance Armstrong gives into doping allegations
Lance Armstrong finally appeared in front of media to talk about his futile fight against doping accusations from the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency. The Texan native, who quit on fighting doping accusations two days ago, believes he is “more at ease now than I have in 10 years.”

Lance Armstrong will receive a ban from the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency for participating in competitions if the charges against the famed cyclist are proven true. The 40-year-old will also be stripped from his wins dating to 1998.
