  • Lance Armstrong said if he could do it all over again, he would still cheat

    Disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong said if he could do it all over again, he would still cheat.
    Armstrong, who got his seven Tour de France titles taken away after he admitted that he doped to win every one of those championships, even allegedly bribed an Italian cyclist with $100,000 in an Italian cake box to throw a race for him.

    Armstrong told ESPN that all of the riders were doping and he and his team were just doing it less. And that is why he told the magazine that he would still dope if he had to do it all over again.

    "I knew what my competitors were doing. We [his U.S. Postal Service team] were doing less," Armstrong told ESPN Magazine. "We were more conservative, and that's the reason we were never going to be caught."

    Armstrong said the USDA and international doping agencies singled him out because he was a bigger jerk than everyone else.

    "This is a story because I was a bigger a--h---. Because I was more litigious. Because I was more combative. ... And I've heard from a lot of people who say, 'You made all the money, you got all the fame, you deserve this.' And I hear that, and I understand that people think that way. But it's not consistent with what USADA has said," he said.

    He also implied that because everyone was doping, he actually was not cheating.

    "To say that he cheated his competitors? Ask them! Ask my competitors," he said.
    Glad he cleared that up.

      It's been ten years since that lonely day I left you
      In the morning rain, smoking gun in hand
      Ten lonely years but how my heart, it still remembers
      Pray for me, momma, I'm a gypsy now

        He is certainly right that all pro cyclist dope. Some are just better at it than others. It's a shame really for those of us that never doped and loved the sport. Competitive cycling is one of those sports that you really can not understand from a technique, strategy, and all out suffering standpoint unless you have done it. It's a lot more than "riding a bicycle".

        I really hope doping does not find it's way into the Crossfit Games. I'd like to die knowing a physical pursuit I've done and respected the effort of the elite actually remained clean.
        If it pays, it stays

          I really hate to break it to you, but that's one of the reasons you see a big surge of exposure. Yes, crossfitters are doping.
