Default Lance Armstrong admits to Doping

This deserves its own thread, outside of the main cycling one.

Being reported at numerous news channels

Lance is going to have to pay a few people a lot of millions now and might well end up in jail on charges of perjury, witness intimidation, drug trafficking and fraud.

Bye, Lance!

Just asking for your opinions, everyone knew eventually...

Do you guys see him having a role in the UCI? He's willing to testify against the doping enablers...

Bringing down Hein Verbruggen and Pat McQuaid will be the only good thing this douchebag has ever done for cycling.
But mind you, evertything Lance will do and has ever done is only because he considers it in his own best (financial) interest. Concepts like empathy, regret, apologies, ethics or fair play are alien to him.

You have just given the standard definition of a psychopath.

Well.. Lance IS a sociopath.. not doubt about it...

Apparently he breaks down in this interview, cringe worthy to say the least...

What is most annoying is the moral boundary he crossed by using the Cancer work to shield him from any criticism.

That's not coincidental.

I just wish he would have gone into politics or finance (who'd notice another psychopath in those fields anyway) instead of ruinig cycling and defrauding the cancer community.

Before anyone accepts his 'apology' just remember how many people's lives he made hell who dared to question him.

It's worse that that. He used his charities brand name to significantly enlarge what was already a small fortune.

Its a grave miscarriage of justice and ethics.

The guy does not deserve a pardon if he cooperates with the authorities.
