So Lance Armstrong has admitted some of his misdemeanour's. The EPO, the steroids, the bullying and the lies. Well done Lance you are now in tune with the rest of the world so your no longer delusional, good work.
Trouble is you helped bring one of the greatest cycling events and a fine sport to its knees. In an orgy of drug taking and miracle performances that made a mockery of competition. You and your kind deprived clean athletes of places on podiums and stopped some people making a living from the sport they also loved, but one they chose to play clean.
Professional cycling has some questions to answer especially the UCI and I'm pleased you now appear to want to tell a little more of the truth. Lets get this done and all move on into a more regulated world. One where most athletes ride clean and the governing bodies mercilessly seek out cheats and frauds, hopefully that will be your legacy to cycling.
My problem with the idea that we should forgive or forget because you say your sorry, that's just ridiculous. The notion that you think that you might have a place in any kind of competitive sport going forward makes my skin crawl. Lance some things can't be atoned for however often you say sorry. Some decisions that you make over decades you live with forever and take to the grave.
If you wear and glory in the Jersey's, the fame and the fortune, the celebrity lifestyle, all those heady years when you rule the world. When it then turns out your victories are built on sand and lies, you have to accept that you need to do something else with the rest of your life.
Its not about the bike and its not about Lance the athlete any more. I'm not interested in anything you have to say about sport going forward, I will now never believe the things you say. So stop seeking a platform and do something with your life, you have years left, use them for some small good and tell no one but the people you help.
