You got to help dictate the terms on which anyone could win at pro road racing for the best part of a decade (ie that they had to take a pile of drugs to finish highly). You do not get to dictate the terms on which the inquest into this mess will be held.

Thank you.

I don't think he reads UKC forums.

He does. He's actually Al Evans.

Apparently he does:


Armstrong was initially given until 6 February to meet Usada officials but was allowed a further two weeks to decide whether to be interviewed.

...

Usada chief executive Travis Tygart said the agency will continue their investigation to clean up cycling without Armstrong.

Apparently he doesn't want to victimise Americans because cycling and the associated doping are mostly a European problem.

Really?

He must have conveniently forgotton about the systemic doping in the US cycling team in the 80's and 90's and his pals Flloyd and Tyler.

May be he bought his kit from Marion Jones and her friends.

Lance is such a fud.

Well he was clearly still lying though his teeth on Oprah so I think it's understandable he doesnt' want to answer similar questions under oath where further lying will increase his chances of going to jail.

Cheers

In reply to Toby_W: Yeah exactly, he's still clinging to that third place in '09. He should re-watch his ride on Ventoux, I did a few weeks ago, compared to a few days before he's a different person. I do think its important though that Lance doesn't take all the doping shame though, there's plenty of others in cycling alone, not to mention those in Spanish tennis and football that have been hinted at and I'd be surprised if this was a uniquely Spanish problem.

Take a look at the results of the Ruta de Sol yesterday - won by Valverde and third on the last stage was one Davide Rebellin.

Who says doping does not pay.

Well I got my bit of venting out of the way. I don't disagree with the point that other US riders/European riders (and also other sports) have their problems. That's just not a reason for him to lead the merry dance and say which bits he will do and won't do.
