An athlete who became a hero to thousands for overcoming cancer and for his foundation's fight against the disease is now officially a drug cheat in the eyes of his nation's doping agency.
The U.S. Anti-Doping Agency has moved to strip Lance Armstrong's seven Tour De France titles and banning him for life after deciding he used performance-enhancing drugs.
Armstrong has strongly denied the doping allegations.
Kent Fultz, owner of Cranker's Cycling and President of the Lima Roadrunners backs Armstrong calling the investigation into wrongdoing by Armstrong, a witch hunt.
The International Cycling Union and the organization that runs the Tour De France say they want an explanation from U.S.A.D.A. before weighing in on the matter.
