That’s the argument Lance Armstrong is using to defend himself in a $120 million federal lawsuit accusing him, and others, of defrauding his former team’s sponsor, the U.S. Postal Service.
Armstrong was stripped of seven Tour de France titles last year amid allegations of doping and in January he admitted that he was indeed using performance-enhancing drugs to win races.
