France Wants Lance to Prove He Was Clean — Should He?

Lance Armstrong announced that he's coming back to the Tour de France next year, and he plans on mixing in some charity work on behalf of the Clinton Global Initiative while he's in Paris. Well France's anti-doping chief wants to add something else to Lance's agenda: clearing his name.

Here's the challenge: Lance should agree to retesting his 1999 urine samples, in order to disprove reports that they contained traces of banned endurance enhancers.

A positive test from 1999, the year Lance won his first of seven titles, couldn't result in disciplinary action as too much time has passed. The urine samples are currently kept frozen in a French lab.

Should Lance take France up on its challenge?
