Anti Doping Agency Public Push To Pressure Lance Armstrong Into Cooperating

Lance Armstrong faces a Wednesday deadline in which to decide whether to meet with U.S. Anti-Doping Agency officials or not… If he does’t answer the agency, they say, he will never be consider reentry into the sport of cycling.


The “Talk” would place the discraced cyclist under oath to blab about what he knows re performance-enhancing drug use in the sport.

The agency has said cooperation in its cleanup effort is the only path open to Armstrong if his lifetime ban from sports is to be reduced but anything he revealed can and will be used against him, as usual. So where’s the favor?

His attorney, Tim Herman, previously suggested his client wouldn’t meet with USADA before the agency’s original Feb. 6 deadline. The sides then agreed to give Armstrong another two weeks to work out an interview with investigators.

Armstrong previously denied using performance-enhancing drugs, but in last month’s television interview with Oprah Winfrey he finally admitted doping to win the Tour de France seven times. UsaToday.

Lance Armstrong Admits Doping

I don’t know if you would call this shocking news but Lance Armstrong just confessed to everything in an interview with Oprah Winfrey. The disgraced cyclist admitting to taking substances that enhanced his cycling all seven years of the tour…


Lance admitted it all during his Oprah interview — saying he took banned substances to enhance his cycling performances befiore all 7 of his Tour de France wins … he blood doped … he took testosterone … EPO … human growth hormone … everything you can imagine.

Oprah asked why he came forward now, Lance replied, “I dont know that I have a great answer. I will start now by saying this is too late … I view this situation as one big lie that I repeated a lot of times … I am a flawed character.”

“I didn’t invent the [doping] culture, but I did nothing to stop the culture … and I am sorry for that.”

When asked if he was ever afraid he’d be caught — Lance replied, “No.”

As for how the whole operation worked, Armstrong hedged on the details — saying, “I viewed it as very simple. You had things that were oxygen-boosting drugs, for lack of a better word, that were incredibly beneficial for endurance sports. And that’s all you needed.”

He added, “My cocktail was only EPO … not a lot … transfusions and testosterone.”

Lance Armstrong To Admit Doping Says Source

The New York Times is reporting Lance Armstrong is weighing his options on coming clean about his very public doping scandal.


The New York Times reports Lance Armstrong is considering a blockbuster admission that he doped throughout his cycling career. The paper quotes “people with direct knowledge of the situation,” who say Armstrong wants to strike a deal with antidoping authorities, so he can resume his athletic career in triathlon and somehow rebuild the reputation of his Livestrong cancer charity. Armstrong’s life has been in ruins since being stripped of his seven Tour de France titles, and lawsuits are piling up from angry parties who feel they were duped.


I think there may be a good point to Armstrong just admitting all of this and getting on with his life and heck who knows? Maybe they may even let him ride again…
