    I have no sympathy for Lance Armstrong. He lied, cheated, and took performance enhancement drugs which enabled him to win seven Tour de France races which he later was ordered to give up. This just proves to you that you cannot trust them native Texas boys.

    The media really needs to stop giving him attention, and just ignore him. He still has enough money left that he can go rogue if he really wants to.

    Cycling has been considered a vanity sport for years even before he came into the scene, and by giving him attention it makes it seem like the rest of us road bikers are complacent with what he did.

    I don't think anyone in competitive cycling or any fans of it ever doubted he was doping. It wasn't the best kept secret that the worlds best all were and I am guessing that is true to this day. UCI, USA Cycling and USADA are all pretty complacent about doping.


    The upside is he doesn't want to have the ban lifted for cycling. He wants to do Triathlon.

    Meh, road bikers are weird and dress funny. Stick with MTB and/or BMX. That's where the fun is at.

    why are we banning drugs? Let the little dudes alone and let them pedal over the Alps. We have Brock Lesnar in the UFC fighting guys for millions. Roid freaks are welcome in most of the world. Sharapova and Usian Bolt. All freaks of chemistry, Let the kids be fast. Short lives, but they are fun to watch.
