Lance Armstrong Angry How the UCI Handled the Michael Boogerd Doping Case

The manner in which the UCI has chosen to mete out punishment to Michael Boogerd, has caught the ire of Lance Armstrong.

The defrocked cyclist, who’s serving a life-time ban for doping offenses himself, took to Twitter yesterday, lashing out at the UCI’s decision to hand Boogerd only a two-year ban for his offenses – calling it ‘pure bullshit’.

The UCI announced yesterday, Boogerd was given a two-year ban for admitting to doping during his time as a professional rider with the Rabobank team, from 1997 to 2007.

While Armstrong had nothing more than the two-word expletive to say in the Boogerd case, the beleaguered ex-pro has never been tacit when is comes to expressing his thoughts about being the scapegoat for an era of professional cycling – overshadowed by doping.

Subsequent to his 2013 confession to doping, in addition to receiving a life-time ban, Armstrong was also stripped of his seven Tour de France titles.

Cycling’s pundits continue to toil back and forth, as to the fairness of those decisions.
