Of course I am not surprised. Somewhat disappointed by the whole affair, but I had long ago concluded that Armstrong had “cheated.” I put “cheated” in quotes not because I think what he did was not “real” cheating, but because as far as I can tell, during his run cycling was more overrun with cheating than even baseball during the 90s. And that’s saying something.
Lance Armstrong confessed during an interview Monday with Oprah Winfrey that he used performance-enhancing drugs to win the Tour de France, a person familiar with the situation told The Associated Press.
The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the interview is to be broadcast Thursday on Winfrey’s network.
A source told ABC News that Armstrong is also talking to cycling authorities about naming names of others involved in illegal doping in hopes of reducing his lifetime ban.
Armstrong is also talking with authorities about paying back some of the money paid by the U.S. Postal Service for sponsoring his team, the source said.
