Local Cyclists React To Armstrong Getting Stripped Of Titles

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Jean Mangan is not only an avid cyclist, but she also works with cancer patients, and she’s especially disheartened by the news about Lance Armstrong being stripped of his seven Tour de France titles.

Mangan says when Armstrong’s testicular cancer was revealed, he became a poster child for families dealing with the disease.

“And with this news that came out now about this alleged EPO blood doping, as well as blood transfusions, it’s extremely disappointing for someone who had such a wonderful place in the eyes of cyclists, and for those of us who deal with cancer patients,” Mangan said.

Armstrong, who retired a year ago, has denied he ever took banned substances.
