Lance admitted it all during his Oprah interview — saying he took banned substances to enhance his cycling performances before all 7 of his Tour de France wins, he blood doped, he took testosterone, EPO, human growth hormone, everything you can imagine.
Lance had denied the allegations for years and when Oprah asked why he came forward now, Lance replied, “I don’t know that I have a great answer. I will start now by saying this is too late. I view this situation as one big lie that I repeated a lot of times. I am a flawed character.” He added, “I didn’t invent the [doping] culture, but I did nothing to stop the culture and I am sorry for that.” You can see some of the video at TMZ.
Here’s what I predict happens. Armstrong somehow becomes the leader in doping prevention in cycling. Since he easily has the most inside information from an athlete perspective he’d know just about anything when it comes to prevention. And my guess is that he’ll make millions doing this. Sure it’s gonna take time but somehow he’ll wind up rich and I’ll be annoyed. Well, he’s rich now but you know what I mean.
This has kind of a Frank Abagnale ring to it.
