Re: Lance Armstrong admits to Doping

The interview is truly without a morsel of remorse.

Isn't there more parts to come?

But yes the 1st part, LA showed no remorse because it is cycling culture.

Re: Lance Armstrong admits to Doping

It's more the fact he glazed over, rather jovially, the most incriminating/ethically incorrect elements of this whole saga. The Andreu's and Emma O'Reilly to name names.

Re: Lance Armstrong admits to Doping

I sort of feel the interview lost its way quite early on in the first part. It was promising when she demanded yes or no answers, but then it descended into a therapy session. I can draw a line under this whole thing now I guess, but there is still many wrongs to be corrected.

One thing is for sure, it is nice to hear him call himself a jerk

The methods and drugs used by Armstrong in 1999 would work in tennis right now, with zero chance of being caught (not slightly surprising to anyone familiar with the topic, btw).

Re: Lance Armstrong admits to Doping

His mannerisms in the federal review and this interview are exactly the same. He's still lying through his teeth. He's not sorry either.

Re: Lance Armstrong admits to Doping

Indeed. Not the slightest bit of doubt he was lying when he said he was clean after 2005: a pile of cast-iron blood doping evidence, and the fact he was still working with Ferrari.

Re: Lance Armstrong admits to Doping

International Olympic Committee member Dick Pound is suspicious about Armstrong's motives. ''If he's going to sell the fact that he's contrite … he's going to have to do some more rehearsals,'' he said.

Re: Lance Armstrong admits to Doping

I wonder if there has been any criminal profilists whom have studied Armstrong's mannerisms to see if he is lying?

It would be interesting just like when they studied Soviet spy Kim Philby's facial expressions.

He's telling the truth. There is no need to misquote him. He said, "No way I would never do that."
