Heads up: Top comment and controversy

It's not looking good for Lance Armstrong

USADA Doping report

Their report runs to 164 pages, plus an addendum, but just in case you can't be bothered to read it all, the U.S Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) yesterday issued a statement previewing the most juicy bit (pun intended).

"The evidence shows beyond any doubt that the US Postal Aervice Pro Cycling Team ran the most sophisticated, professionalized and successful doping program that sport has ever seen," the statement said.

You will recall that Lance Armstrong officially dropped his fight against the USDA's charges in late August, but maintains his innocence. The USADA thing otherwise, however, and it gets worse: "The evidence also includes direct documentary evidence including financial payments, emails, scientific data and laboratory test results that further prove the use, possession and distribution of performance enhancing drugs by Lance Armstrong and confirm the disappointing truth about the deceptive activities of the USPS Team, a team that received tens of millions of American taxpayer dollars in funding."

Meanwhile, if his twitter account  @lancearmstrong is to be believed the seven-time Tour De France winner is taking it all in his stride: "What am I doing tonight? Hanging out with my family unaffected and thinking about this bit.ly/Po6mXT"
