You Are Not Welcome Here Anymore

Mostly though I don't want you to return to cycling or triathlon in any shape or form. Sure you can run a bike shop and swim, bike or run as you please, but you should not be able to compete in any of these sports.
I don't have a vendetta against you, nor have I had it out for you for years. I also don't wish for you to be strung up, tortured or sent to prison, and I also don't believe that you should no longer be able to go out in public and pursue a hobby. So go play poker, darts or golf, but in terms of competing in triathlon or cycling You Are Not Welcome Here Anymore.
The brief and to the point opinion expressed here is the view of the Herbert Krabel, editor-in-chief for this site. This opinion does not necessarily represent those of Slowtwitch staff, and/or any/all contributors to this site.
For some weeks I have been receiving calls and emails urging me to express my view on Lance Armstrong (to these I say, be careful what you ask for). After considerable deliberation, here it is. 10.26.12
The UCI and the ASO have agreed to strip Armstrong of Tour titles. Oakley dropped Armstrong today, and SCA Promotions has just sent a demand letter asking for $7.5 million. 10.22.12
(updated: several more sponsors out) Nike severs a longstanding relationship with Lance Armstrong, and the pressure is on Trek, Bontrager, SRAM, Oakley to make a decision on cycling's most loved and hated superstar 10.17.12
