Luke Armstrong, the son of ex-pro cyclist Lance Armstrong, has been arrested in Texas for sexual assault of a child, according to an Austin police department arrest affidavit.

The affidavit, obtained by Texan television station KXAN, says that the then-18-year-old sexually assaulted a 16-year-old after a party in Austin in March of 2018. The girl reported the incident in November 2020, telling police that she had asked Armstrong to pick her up from the party, where she had been drinking.

Cyclingnews is the world's leader in English-language coverage of professional cycling. Started in 1995 by University of Newcastle professor Bill Mitchell, the site was one of the first to provide breaking news and results over the internet in English. The site was purchased by Knapp Communications in 1999, and owner Gerard Knapp built it into the definitive voice of pro cycling. Since then, major publishing house Future PLC has owned the site and expanded it to include top features, news, results, photos and tech reporting. The site continues to be the most comprehensive and authoritative English voice in professional cycling.
