Lance Armstrong and several doctors and others involved with his former cycling teams have just been hit with formal doping charges by the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA).

If the USADA’s “Review Board” upholds these charges, the USADA has the power to strip Armstrong of his 7 Tour de France victories and ban him from all further participation in organized sports.

We’ve now read the USADA’s allegations in detail. They’re similar to the allegations that have been made in increasing detail against Armstrong for years.

We’ve spelled them out in the following slides.

In addition to accusing Armstrong of blood-doping, the USADA alleges that he and the other “co-conspirators” organized a decade-long cover-up that included lying under oath and retaliating against witnesses.

Armstrong quickly and emphatically denied the charges. As he has before, he did not just invoke the typical carefully worded statement about never having failed a drug test. Rather, he said, definitively, that he has “never doped.”
