I really do not understand why several organisations which have no power over the results of the Tour de France, are "stripping" him of his titles. What makes it even worse is that the media is considered him as already being striped of the titles. But the people behind the Tour de France have not stripped him of his titles,therefore he is still a 7 time winner. I really do not understand why the Tour de France organizers haven't made a media release blasting both the UCI and the USADA for interfering with their organisation. If I was running a organisation and a NGO like the USADA and the UCI said some of the winners of my events were no longer winners,although I hadn't made a decision I would go on a media attack against them. And another thing is that the UCI is saying he is banned for life from cycling,which isn't true. He is just banned from their affiliated events,anyone or any group can create their own cycling organisations and racing events and they do not have to follow the rulings of the USADA or the UCI.
