Armstrong cleared by French doping agency

April 13, 2009

Lance Armstrong was cleared Friday to ride in this year’s Tour de France — health permitting — when the French anti-doping agency confirmed it would not be launching disciplinary procedures against the seven-time champion.

The agency opted not to take any action against the 37-year-old American in connection with an incident in the French Riviera town of Beaulieu-sur-Mer on March 17.

Although Armstrong is recovering from breaking his collarbone in March, he has indicated he hopes to be ready for the Tour de France in July.
