Lance Armstrong Faces New Doping Allegations

Lead in text: 
The Washington Post reports Austin native Lance Armstrong was notified of new doping charges against him yesterday. The move comes after a separate investigation into potential doping ended in February.
The U.S. Anti-Doping Agency brought formal doping charges against former cyclist Lance Armstrong in an action that could cost him his seven Tour de France titles, according to a letter sent to Armstrong and several others Tuesday. As a result of the formal charges, Armstrong has been immediately banned from competition in triathlons, a sport he took up after his retirement from cycling in 2011.
