A Dallas-based insurer has demanded that Lance Armstrong return nearly $10 million in bonuses it paid after he won his sixth Tour de France in 2004.

SCA Promotions announced its demand after the Union Cycliste International stripped Armstrong of his seven Tour victories and banned him from the sport for life on Monday.

In doing so, the UCI said it accepted the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency's " reasoned decision " of Oct. 10, which accused Armstrong of running the most sophisticated doping program in the history of sports.
