Armstrong misses deadline to lodge appeal against Tour de France titles stripping
Sydney: Banned cyclist Lance Armstrong has missed the cut-off date to lodge an appeal over being stripped of his seven Tour de France titles for systematic doping, according to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS).
Armstrong has been wiped from the record books, with all of his achievements since August 1998 binned by the International Cycling Union (UCI) after he was accused of being at the heart of sports` biggest ever doping scandal, the Age reports. The UCI notified the Texan on December 6 that he had until December 27 to appeal his lifetime ban.
Armstrong, who has always denied doping, had already announced in August that he was dropping his legal challenge against the allegations made against him by the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA).
