'Lance Armstrong abandons fight against doping charges. Will be stripped of Tour de France titles and banned for life. Story to follow.'
Wow. Next question, what will he say to the public?
So now we know he's guilty for sure. About time. See you Lance. Don't let the door hit you in the butt on the way out.
So will the US Triathlon Federation, USATF, and whoever in US sanctions untras besides USATF abide by his "nolo contendere" plea, and ban him from their events?
This move saves face with his hobby-cyclist / jogger / triatlete base. They will view it as a witch hunt and show him the ultimate respect for saving himself and family all the "agony."
Final thought, what happens to Livestrong and sponsored events and facilities, like Livestrong Park for Sporting KC? Any business-person with a keen sense in sports will not want to be affiliated with a doper.

Epo, the blood doping drug used by cyclists, is intended for use by chemo therapy patients to increase red blood cell count. So obviously, Lance Armstrong, a cancer survivor, should be given a little leniency here. Is is an unfair advantage or does it allow him to perform up to his natural abilities? I say the latter
