Disgraced cycling great Lance Armstrong has cut ties with his cancer-fighting charity amid his doping scandal.

A Livestrong spokeswoman on Monday confirmed Armstrong has resigned from the board of directors of the Austin-based group.

Armstrong on Oct. 17 stepped down as chairman of Livestrong in an attempt to minimize the damage caused by a devastating U.S. Anti-Doping Agency report. USADA last month banned the cancer survivor from the sport and stripped him of his seven Tour de France titles.

Livestrong spokeswoman Katherine McLane says Armstrong resigned from the board Nov. 4.

McLane says Armstrong felt it was in the best interest of the organization and that he "remains the inspiration of the mission." McLane says it was Armstrong's decision to step down from the board.
