A week after the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency released a report detailing the evidence behind their decision to ban Lance Armstrong from cycling and strip him of his seven Tour de France titles, Nike decided to dump him on his ass and leave him and his one testicle to think about what they’ve done. The Daily Mail says:
Nike has announced today that it is cutting all sporting ties with disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong, citing insurmountable evidence that he participated in doping and misled the company for more than a decade.
Just minutes before Nike’s announcement, Armstrong revealed he was stepping down as chairman of his Livestrong cancer-fighting charity so that the organization can steer clear of the whirlwind surrounding its founder.
Not just banned from cycling and dropped by his biggest sponsor, but forced to resign from his own charity. Damn, that’s cold. It’s not every day you see a man stripped of his victory over cancer.
If you’re gonna wear bike shorts, these are so much sexier.
