Just four years ago, the name Lance Armstrong was synonymous with professional cycling.
He had won the Tour de France seven times in a row, plus Armstrong was idolized for fighting cancer through his Livestrong Foundation. Everything changed in 2012: His titles — and reputation — were stripped away after U. authorities discovered "the most sophisticated, professionalized and successful doping program that sport has ever seen." Lance admitted everything to in an Oprah interview in 2013, saying his "mythic, perfect story" was "one big lie." So what is Lance Armstrong doing now?
The Wall Street Journal reported at the time of his Oprah interview that he would like to keep competing in the three-discipline sport; he began when he gave up cycling in 2011.
The Journal reported that he directed his lawyers to get him back in USADA's good legal graces in order to do so.

During last year's Tour de France, Armstrong noted that other prominent riders could still participate. He said the cause was worthwhile but "Lance Armstrong’s involvement in this ride is inappropriate.”While negotiating a potential return to the sporting world, Armstrong is still working through the effects of the doping revelations. And it's a big chunk of money: million, that they paid to his team from 1998 to 2004 covering six of his seven Tour de France victories.The sponsor of his cycling team when he was doping, the U. Armstrong called the case "long on speculation and hyperbole" in a motion filed last Wednesday.
