With his classic bring-it-on attitude, Lance says he's not afraid of an investigation into new blood doping claims against him, according to

Sports Illustrated recently reported new evidence against Armstrong (read our blog post about it), adding one more episode to the ongoing saga of doping allegations and investigations thrown at him.

Armstrong, who is competing now at the Tour Down Under in Australia, found some time to Tweet his feelings on the matter on Friday: “Great to hear that USADA is investigating some of SI's claims. I look forward to being vindicated.”
