Lance Armstrong has been stripped of his award in the Legion of Honor, the best-known recognition in France. Armstrong was given the rank of ''Chevalier'' - or Knight - in the ''Legion d'Honneur'' in 2005, the last year of his seven consecutive Tour de France victories. A Legion of Honor official, who wasn't authorized to be quoted by name, said Wednesday she was unable to indicate when the decision was made to remove Armstrong's award. The Legion of Honor was created under Napoleon Bonaparte in 1802, and roughly 1 million people have received it over the years. More...

Armstrong teammate Hincapie pens stark memoir (The Associated Press)
April 25, 2014 (01:00) [ Indexed from Yahoo! Sports ]
George Hincapie was the ''Loyal Lieutenant'' who helped Lance Armstrong to seven Tour de France titles, only to later provide the key testimony that brought his downfall. Now, Hincapie is talking again about one of the darkest eras in cycling. In a book due out next month, part memoir and part mea culpa, Hincapie discusses not only his rise in cycling, from the son of a Colombian immigrant in the New York City borough of Queens to the top teammate of Armstrong, but also the pervasive use of performance-enhancing substances that came to mark an entire generation - and ultimately turned Armstrong from hero into pariah.

A Texas appeals court has rejected Lance Armstrong's attempts to block an arbitration panel from reviewing $12 million in bonuses paid to him by a company that wants its money back. The Dallas-based Fifth Court of Appeals had temporarily halted the case at Armstrong's request in March, but ruled Thursday it doesn't have jurisdiction at this stage of an arbitration matter. SCA Promotions sought to reopen a 2006 settlement paid to Armstrong after his 2013 admission to using performance-enhancing drugs during his cycling career to win the Tour de France. The arbitration panel that first approved the settlement agreed to reconsider the case. More...

Lance Armstrong has given sworn testimony naming several people he says knew about his performance-enhancing drug use, insisting he didn't pay anyone or any organization to keep his doping secret.

Armstrong said those who provided him with performance-enhancing drugs included trainer Pepi Marti, Dr. Pedro Celaya, Dr. Luis Garcia del Moral and Dr. Michele Ferrari, all of whom were involved with Armstrong's teams or part of his entourage. He also said team manager Johan Bruyneel assisted his doping. More...
