While the world’s top cyclists prepare to race across the French countryside and charge up the Alps next month, disgraced former Tour de France champion Lance Armstrong may be watching from the offices of his law firm.
Ex-champion cyclist Lance Armstrong, whose team was sponsored by the U.S. Postal Service, will have to face claims in a $120 million whistle-blower lawsuit that he defrauded the government by using performance-enhancing drugs.
Lance Armstrong, stripped of seven Tour de France victories and banned from professional cycling in 2012, was questioned under oath for the first time since he admitted doping in an Oprah Winfrey interview last year.
We hear there was a time back in the day when the marijuana scene was an exciting and mystical era of illicit fun. We’ve heard the stories of copping from a friend of a friend after furtive phone calls that ensued from clandestine introductions, peppered with obfuscatory euphemisms intended, ironically, to clarify the desired transaction and terms.
The judge in a whistle-blower lawsuit accusing Lance Armstrong of defrauding the government by using banned substances in violation of his team’s contract with the U.S. Postal Service put on hold a deposition of the disgraced cyclist.
