• More Bad News For Lance Armstrong

    Disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong has been ordered to pay back $10 million to a Dallas promotions company for bonus money he received for winning the Tour de France in 2002, 2003, and 2004.

    Lance has been trying to stop a Dallas arbitration panel from revisiting a settlement which dates back over a decade, but now has lost another race. The panel’s ruling became public on Monday.

    SCA Promotions paid Armstrong millions in 2002 and 2003, but had refused to pay out his bonus in 2004 when rumors became widespread that the cyclist had been doping. Armstrong vehemently denied these allegations, and in 2006, much to their chagrin, SCA was forced to cut a deal and settle for a reported $7.5 million.

    Everything was quiet for the next seven years until in 2013, Armstrong did an exclusive interview with Oprah and admitted to doping…needless to say, it took a whole month for SCA to get Armstrong back in court, and after two years of legal battles…SCA finally won

    Armstrong’s attorneys are expected to fight the panel’s ruling.
