Austin, TX (Indiana’s NewsCenter) - It appears we might not be able to call 7-time Tour de France champion, Lance Armstrong, a world class cyclist anymore.

Armstrong announced Thursday night that he will no longer fight the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency's charges against him.

The USADA has accused Armstrong of using performance-enhancing drugs during his cycling career, claims Armstrong denies.

The body's chief executive says the agency will ban Armstrong for life and will strip him of his seven Tour de France titles.
