Bruyneel loses appeal over Tour de France ban

Bruyneel loses appeal over Tour de France ban

Lance Armstrong's RadioShack team will be without manager Johan Bruyneel for important races in March after he lost an appeal to change the start date of a suspension imposed because he insulted officials at the 2010 Tour de France.
The Court of Arbitration for Sport has dismissed Bruyneel's challenge to an International Cycling Union order to serve his two-month ban in February and March.
Bruyneel wanted the suspension applied in January and February.
Being banned in March forces Bruyneel to miss three stage races, including Paris-Nice, and one-day classics Milano-Sanremo and Gent-Wevelgem.
However, Bruyneel can work with Armstrong in his scheduled farewell professional ride at the Jan. 16-23 Tour Down Under in Australia.
