Lance Armstrong is a Cheater

Lance Armstrong has to go down as one of the biggest frauds in sports history.  Yet, despite the growing amounts of evidence over the years of his doping, there still remains a loyal following of his supporters who have their head in the sand.  Even the most ardent Armstrong supporter won’t be able to ignore the most recent allegations.  They come from his former teammate Tyler Hamilton:

“I saw (EPO) in his refrigerator .. I saw him inject it more than one time like we all did, like I did many, many times,” Hamilton told “60 Minutes'” Scott Pelley. “(Armstrong) took what we all took … the majority of the peloton. There was EPO … testosterone … a blood transfusion.”

Armstrong is taking the Barry Bonds defense so far.  Via Twitter, he said, “20+ year career. 500 drug controls worldwide, in and out of competition. Never a failed test. I rest my case.”

Of course this isn’t even true.  Michael Ashenden explains:

Do yourself a favor and read the whole interview.  It is lengthy, but it rips Lance’s argument to shreds.  As disappointing as it is that the Lance fairy tale turned out to be a farce, this will go down as a great victory against cheaters in sports.

    Evidence aside, the supporters at this point seem to be the people who want and need to believe him for the sheer magnitude of the accomplishment and story it created. The choice becomes weighing your desire for a feel good story against the obvious.

    No one wants to believe this because if it’s true, they could no longer wear those fly wristbands.
