Judge dismisses Armstrong lawsuit against USADA

George Hincapie and Lance Armstrong, Tour de France 2003

The lawsuit was the latest salvo launched by Armstrong in the long-running spat between the seven-time Tour de France winner and USADA over charges of doping. Armstrong sought to bar USADA from continuing its case against the Texan, and was an attempt to preserve his Tour titles, which are now under threat.

Nigel Wynn
Former Associate Editor

Nigel Wynn worked as associate editor on CyclingWeekly.com, he worked almost single-handedly on the Cycling Weekly website in its early days. His passion for cycling, his writing and his creativity, as well as his hard work and dedication, were the original driving force behind the website’s success. Without him, CyclingWeekly.com would certainly not exist on the size and scale that it enjoys today. Nigel sadly passed away, following a brave battle with a cancer-related illness, in 2018. He was a highly valued colleague, and more importantly, an exceptional person to work with - his presence is sorely missed.
