I'll bet most people would have done PEDs if that was what it took to win in that sport. With millions of $ sitting
There through endorsements, everybody else was doing some form of it, the pressure to win and being young at the prime of his game. People are fooling there selves if they think they wouldn't have done the same thing.

Undoubtedly, Lance Armstrong used doping to enhance his cycling performance as most of his competition did. He was tested for doping during seven years of winning first place and the testing did not find any wrong doing which made his successful and rich while he gave lots of money to donation to fight cancer. Doping will continue to become reality in our lives since the testing cannot detect it which makes many like Lance Armstrong taking the chance to win which same as Football, Baseball, Hocky, 100 meter run and other sports. Lance Armstrong will probably lose millions of dollars on his adventure but life will go on.

We need to remember that before all the 7 wins. He started one of the most successful cancer foundations and support groups in the world. Yes the wins and his story aided in the growth. Yes he lied, and cheated at his sport. But he has also helped millions since 1997 that have or are battling cancer. I am a brain cancer/tumor survivor his foundation and his fight against this horrible desease helped me during my battle. I don't forgive him but I still respect him for this.

Lance's interview honestly seemed to be as calculated as his cover up.

What about guys like Cadel Evans. I remmber seeing his face after a mountain climb and he looked like death trying to keep with him. What about the guys who came second. What about there endoresements and sponseships. Everyone calling them chokers and him a champion. Nice guys finish last and liars and cheeters make take the gold. The whole Opera thing wasso he could say that when he came back and placed third he was clean and was very pissed that they said he was doping during his return. That was what was hurting him the most.

Lets remember that people who want to give money, don't do it for the celebrities.
Shut Livestrong down and give all it's money to another cancer foundation.
The world should erase Lance Armstrongs legacy.
He should not feel like he has achieved something again.
He has denied someone else their rightful opportunity.

Maybe if all cyclist didn't take so much steroids they wouldn't have to ride as far, and then just sprint in the last 100m.

I also think that Lance deserved to be interviewed by a news cadet not Opera.
And I missed the indepth questions, Opera's hopeless.
