Doping Charges Filed Against Lance Armstrong

(CNN) – Doping charges are filed against champion cyclist Lance Armstrong.   On Friday, the U-S Anti-Doping Agency confirmed that it is moving forward with its case against Armstrong and five of his former teammates.

If the cyclists choose, the case will move next to a panel who would see all evidence and hear witness testimony before giving a ruling.

Riders have accused Armstrong of using performance-enhancing drugs, but he has always denied that and has never failed a drug test.

Armstrong’s attorney describes the agency’s decision as “wrong” and “baseless.”

Armstrong won the Tour de France seven times.
