TRIATHLON TROUBLE: Doping Charge Could Keep Armstrong Out
The latest charge from the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency, could keep 7-time Tour de France winner Lance Armstrong from competing at this year’s Hy-Vee Triathlon.
The agency wants to strip Armstrong of all seven titles.
Armstrong maintains he never doped but until he clears his name, he can’t compete in his new passion — triathlons.
Hy-Vee’s Ruth Comer points out Armstrong, who has even ridden in RAGBRAI in the past, has been drug-tested more than 500 times and has never failed.
Comer says, “If Armstrong’s able to compete, it`s going to be a fantastic race; if he isn`t, we`re still going to have the best professional field ever assembled for a triathlon.”
