This is one of those things that is incredibly unfair in the sports cycling. As far as I know, he’s the only one banned for life from cycling, however, we all know he is not the only one that dopped or lied about it. Moreover, he’s banned for pretty much every professional sport. I guess the intention of this is to set an example, a bad one in my opinion, but an explain none the less. 
Sadly, Lance is the Pete Rose of cycling and endurance sports.
