The reaction to Lance Armstrong's announcement that he will not fight the drug charges threatening his legacy is quick.

 

Susan Bonacker with Sunnyside Sports says the cycling community has been buzzing with the announcement; and while Armstrong never admitted guilt, “I think he knows there's really no win there. If he were, perchance to be found innocent, no one would believe it. The only verdict that I think they will believe is a guilty verdict. I think he realizes it's a no win situation, so it's best just to move on."

 

Bonacker says the all sports have been hit with "doping" or performance enhancing drug allegations, but cycling seems to be especially hit hard.

 

She says although there is a dark cloud over Armstrong, it should not take away from what he has brought to cycling over his career, such as the greater interested in the sport because of Armstrong’s achievements.

 

Armstrong will be stripped of his seven Tour du France titles, and  be banned from competitive cycling for life.
