Oakley drops Lance Armstrong

Over the weekend I heard that Lance Armstrong had got into some trouble with drugs. Then I hear that they are stripping him of all his cycling titles he has won since 1998. And that includes his 7 tour de france titles. Im not sure what all of his spnosors are doing but as for Oakley, they have announced today that they are dropping his sponsorship but they are going to continue to support the live strong foundation because they feel that it has done a lot of good for people with cancer.

This really is sad news because Lance Armstrong was a sports icon. And he really showed what hard work and dedication can do no matter what is wrong with you. But now we find out that he was doing drugs and that just completely over shadows everything we knew about him. This just goes toshow everyone that drugs is not worth it because you are always going to get caught somewhere down the road.
