Lance Armstrong Fined $10 Million For ‘Unparallelled Pageant Of International Perjury’
[su_right_ad]Armstrong is on the losing end in his years-long case against SCA promotions.
Armstrong originally won a case against SCA Promotions in 2006, which was forced to pay the Texan former professional rider $7.5million in bonuses for winning seven editions of the Tour de France, 1999-2005. SCA had originally refused the payment due to a question mark over Armstrong’s then alleged use of banned performance-enhancing substances.
During that court case, Armstrong swore under oath that he had never taken performance-enhancing substances to aid winning the Tour…
Armstrong has since admitted to doping during all seven of his Tour de France victories and was subsequently stripped of the wins and handed a lifetime ban. His admission was proof that he lied to gain the money from Dallas-based company.

The greatest fraud in sports history just keeps unraveling. We’ll know that he has finally accepted his leadership role when he apologizes to Betsy Andreu!

Lying is almost never the right thing to do, but now folks will definitely make SURE never to lie about how they prepared to ride a bicycle! 10 MILLION bones! He should have lied about weapons of mass destruction or something that only caused thousands upon thousands of people to die – no big deal. But lying about bicycle riding preparation? Serious stuff.

He called a lot of his former friends liars and sued them for their claims that he was doping, and destroyed them in court. Sadly, he won those law suits. Hopefully, the people who were ruined by his lies will be able to get some justice and their finances back.

no body but corporate lackies and disappointed fans were hurt – more the pride of the system than what occurred – he’s still one of the top with Merxx, Hinault, Pantini,
