Just another nobody that the media is using to keep the hoopleheads amused and focused on the mundane.

How man people are pro-bike participants or fans. A lot of fluff over nothing. What should have been a minor story from the beginning has been turned into a media circus and forced down our throats on TV.

Want to know what I think...Who cares?

Want to know what I think of people who do...TV Zombies. Might as well shove an ice pick behind your eye and wiggle it.
Uuuhhh OK

Ok. I think he had a lot of balls admitting his doping. BUT, he loses said balls doing it on Oprah.

I dunno Redneck, Lance Armstrong used Procrit which is used for Cancer patients to fight anemia. I don't think he did "doping", I just think he used a legal substance ahead of the time when people figured it could enhance sports performance.

While it is a drug, one has to argue why it's even regulated, since it's barely more than an iron supplement...

Has anyone considered he lied, he cheated, he sued among other things? Does a TV interview on Oprah or anyone else's show make him admirable? He showed no remorse. I never thought I'd say it but I agree with Redneck!

Funny thing is that he admitted it but he really did not apologize or seem remorseful. I really dont care, nor do I know anyone else who actually watches pro biking. To me it's just one more overpaid crybaby who got caught and now is sooo sorry. Yeah sorry they got caught not sorry for what they did.

Bicycle racing is an incredible sport. The bikes weigh like 18-pounds, they'll take the rider up to high speeds of 60+ miles per hour, the guys will travel at speeds of 20 mph most of the time.

Cyclists are in such good shape their resting heart rates are 38 beats/minute.

I'd much rather watch a portion of cycling than a stupid football game where the guys bang into each other, give themselves concussions, then fall down.

The public, "I'm so sorry" has worn it's course in our country. Bill Clinton was subjected to it 20-years ago and we've seen enough stupid public apologies since then, haven't we?
