Armstrong should keep titles: Indurain
Cycling legend Miguel Indurain says Lance Armstrong should keep his seven Tour de France titles until drug charges are proven by a single authority recognised by everyone in the sport.
Five-time Tour winner Indurain says “until an organisation recognised by all decides to the contrary, the Tour victories are his.”
Indurain, who won five straight Tours from 1991-95, says there are too many national and international bodies with differing interests in the fight against doping.
Indurain also called the US Anti-Doping Agency’s case against Armstrong “strange,” claiming its pursuit of the American was “without scruples.”
The Spanish cyclist, writing in Saturday’s Marca newspaper, says he isn’t surprised Armstrong chose not to contest charges from USADA.© AAP 2013
