The financial dominoes continue to fall for Lance Armstrong, this time taking a Texas-sized chunk from the disgraced cyclist’s bank account.
The seven-time Tour de France champion, who was stripped of his cycling titles, has been ordered by a Texas court to pay $10 million in a fraud dispute with a promotions company.
The three-person arbitration panel announced a 2-1 decision in favor of Dallas-based SCA Promotions on Monday. SCA Promotions paid Armstrong over $12M in bonuses throughout his career, but sued once proof of performance-enhancing drug use by Armstrong and his USPS cycling team was confirmed.
