Weekend Watch: Lance Armstrong on Oprah Part 1

Link To The Oprah Interview (All YouTube Videos Removed)

I have resisted blogging about the Lance Armstrong case up to this point.

I will openly admit that he was one of my heroes when I was getting into cycling, one of my role models...what I viewed as the icon of the sport. I had photos of him on my bedroom wall, I had the full library of his books and other books on his success; his example was the one to follow....or so I thought.
Since then those idolisations have been crushed, in a slow and painful way.

This interview is the first of the "confessions" with Oprah Winfrey, revealing the full extent of the drugs programme that Lance Armstrong took part in, and largely conducted. I have only posted it on here because I hope that this will now end the whole ordeal.

Let us move on, to a cleaner world of cycling...I myself have found many new idols, especially with last year's Tour de France and Olympics. I hope that you have all done the same.
