Lance Armstrong, who is poised to be stripped of his seven Tour de France titles after relinquishing his fight against drug charges, has received backing from his former team boss Johan Bruyneel and Eddy Merckx.

“Today I am disappointed for Lance and for cycling in general, that things have reached such a point that Lance has had enough and no longer wants to challenge the US Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) campaign against him,” said Bruyneel.

“Lance has never withdrawn from a fair fight in his life so his decision today underlines what an unjust process this has been,” he said on his website johanbruyneel.com.
