URGENT ¥¥¥ Cycling: US firm sues Armstrong over bonus money

A US insurance firm on Thursday filed a lawsuit against disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong seeking restitution of $12 million in bonus money paid to the American for his Tour de France triumphs.

The Texas-based company, SCA Promotions, wants Armstrong to repay money the firm insured from his Tour victories in 2002, 2003 and 2004, after he was stripped of his record seven Tour titles last year.
