Bike Helmet Company

DROPS Lance Armstrong

The bike helmet company that crafted Lance Armstrong's $15,000 helmet for the 2010 Tour de France -- and launched a full line of Lance Armstrong helmets -- has DROPPED the disgraced cyclist in the wake of the doping scandal, TMZ has learned.

A rep for Giro Helmets tells TMZ, "We will not be continuing our sponsorship of Lance Armstrong moving forward. We continue to support the cancer community through our association with LIVESTRONG."

Giro's not the first company to boot Armstrong -- Nike announced it would no longer be sponsoring him either, claiming Armstrong "misled" the company for more than a decade.

FYI -- the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency released a report last week, detailing Armstrong's direct involvement in what it called "the most sophisticated, professionalized and successful doping program that sport has ever seen."

Armstrong -- who's been banned from pro cycling for life -- still denies the doping allegations.

They say doping is procycling is rampant. I believe it. When I see these racer types in their dayglo spandex tearing around the roads and sidewalks, they act like they are on drugs. They act oblivious to cars and pedestrians. I thought they were just arrogant, but they might be on drugs also.


I think Lance gave himself cancer from all of the drugs he took. Then he dumped Cheryl Crow when she had cancer after she stood at his side the whole time. The combination of car fumes, tight pants and drugs must mess these people up in the head.


He has plenty of money already. Honor is something that you can't buy. You either have it or you don't. He made a fool out of the sports world so I don't see why he should expect to be honored by them any more.

I get paid over $87 per hour working from home with 2 kids at home. I never thought I'd be able to do it but my best friend earns over 10k a month doing this and she convinced me to try. The potential with this is endless. Heres what I've been doing, EarlyRich.com
