Statement by Lance Armstrong (PDF)

There comes a point in every man’s life when he has to say, “Enough is enough.” For me, that time is now. I have been dealing with claims that I cheated and had an unfair advantage in winning my seven Tours since 1999. Over the past three years, I have been subjected to a two-year federal criminal investigation followed by Travis Tygart’s unconstitutional witch hunt. The toll this has taken on my family, and my work for our foundation and on me leads me to where I am today – finished with this nonsense.

Letter by Armstrong’s lawyer (PDF) has also been published.

Lance Armstrong is probably the most tested athlete in history for doping. He won seven consecutive Tour de France and thoroughly tested.
