Despite USADA, Lance Armstrong to podcast during Colorado Classic – Colorado News

Lance Armstrong won’t get marketing cash or support from Colorado Classic organizers, but the disgraced cyclist still will host his popular “Stages” cycling podcast from a Denver winery during the inaugural pro cycling race.

Organizers abandoned a marketing partnership with the Armstrong after the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency — which spent years doggedly investigating the cyclist and allegations he was doping — raised concerns that the deal might be a violation of the admitted doper’s lifetime ban from pro cycling.
