Lance Armstrong Tells Oprah “Not Possible” to Win Tour de France 7 Times in a Row (Video)


Below in our homepage video player, Lance Armstrong tells Oprah Winfrey that it wouldn’t have been possible to win the Tour de France seven times without doping. The entire Oprah interview is fascinating. The bottom line is that this guy comes off like a sociopath. I do wonder what all the celebrities who gathered around him during his heyday and championed him — people like Robin Williams and Matthew McConnaughey, to say nothing of Sheryl Crow– are thinking right now. Anyway, it’s a sad story of a terrible hoax that was perpetrated on the public, on the people around Armstrong, the cyclists, etc. It’s a miserable way for people around the world to view an American athlete who was held out as a hero.
