Lance Armstrong’s record setting seventh Tour de France victory, along with
his entire Tour de France legacy, may be tarnished by what could turn out
to be one of the greatest sports scandals of all time. Armstrong is being
quizzed by French police after three banned substances were found in his
South of France hotel room while on vacation after winning the 2005 Tour de

The three substances found were toothpaste, deodorant, and soap, which have
been banned by French authorities for over 75 years. Armstrong’s girlfriend
and American rocker Sheryl Crowe is quoted as saying “We use them every day
in America, so we naturally thought they’d be okay throughout Europe.”

Along with these three banned substances, French authorities also
physically searched Armstrong himself and found several other interesting
items that they have never seen before, including a backbone and testicles.
