Promoter demands refund from Armstrong



A Dallas promotions company that paid Lance Armstrong $7 million for winning his sixth Tour de France is demanding he return the money.

A spokesman for SCA Promotions says the company will send Armstrong a demand letter on Monday now that Armstrong's seven Tour de France titles have been revoked.

The US Anti-Doping Agency reported evidence that Armstrong used performance enhancing drugs during all seven of his tour victories.

Armstrong's attorneys have anticipated such a demand, saying SCA entered a voluntary settlement to pay Armstrong and cannot get its money back.

The company had tried in 2005 not to pay Armstrong because of allegations of doping, but chose to settle.

Earlier Friday, the International Cycling Union said Armstrong should return about $4 million in prize money.
