(WSCR) Regardless of the fact that Lance Armstrong will soon be stripped of his seven Tour de France titles and banned from the sport for doping, Nike will stand by his side.

Armstrong announced Thursday that he would no loner fight allegations from the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency that he cheated his way to success in cycling.

“Enough is enough,” Armstrong said in a statement.
