    As if that will be the end of it. On a level "drugged" playing field, he still was the one who won 7 straight TDFs.

    I(my opinion) think that he's out for blood and is set to burn down the castle and all within it.

    Let's all confess our biking related sins in this thread!

    On rides after I've cleaned my bike I sometimes ride off trail to avoid mud.

    Great. More tax dollars to waste chasing down obvious and truly irrelevant crap that we all already know.

    Can we put Tygart in charge of the SEC and sick him on Wall Street instead?

    Ditto. Lance still transformed cycling like no one ever has.
    Please donate to IMBA or your local IMBA chapter. It's trail karma.

    Lance Armstrong was a hero to many, including myself. Perhaps it is na´vetÚ to think he was above the drugs, but I wanted to believe it.

    No long-winded soapbox for me. Athletes need to step up and clean up.

    Interesting to see how this plays out.

    Was not a level playing field at all. Lance was above and beyond everybody else even drug-wise. He paid A LOT of monies to gain this advantage.

    It's gonna be one hell of a movie when it all comes out, or at a least a great book.

    If he does confess it will be interesting to see how he spins it. I could see him outing a ton of people and then try and paint himself as cycling's savior.

    He had his chance to come clean and fess. There isn't anyone bigger to throw under the bus at this point. Why would anyone make him a deal and who would be stupid enough to believe what he says now anyway?

    I read Tyler's book and was amazed by Tyler's accusation of Lance turning him into the UCI for cheating. "Yeah, Uhm, Hein, I taught him how to cheat but now he's doing it better than me. Can you do somthing about that for me?

    I hope Lance somehow brings down all of his detractors, so much so that during the endless time they are all endlessly defending themselves in non-ending costly lawsuits they turn to each other and said "man, what did we get ourselves into?"

    I am over it.. he repeatedly said he didn't take drugs which just makes him a liar, just like the rest. The whole sport is just stupid and corrupt, lets stop wasting everyone's time and money with it.

    Lance is the reason Aaron Gwin will be riding Specialized...

    Make that Springer and include the rest of the former USPS team and I'd watch.

    I suspect Gwin's transfer has a lot more to do with CASH than LANCE.

    probably and who can blame the guy with the prospects of a short career due to injuries... and not to mention lack of a retirement plan..

    But the lance situation may have been the perfect escape clause...

    Oh yes! Must see tv. Springer's final thought would be the catalyst for the change that Pro cycling needs.

    That's not the only reason it was/is not a level playing field. Just because there was a "legal" limit to hemocrit does not mean that everybody could ride at that limit and be "equal". Like everything else, different bodies respond to EPO and to transfusions in different ways. Some riders gain more benefit from drugs than others, either in race situation or in training, where the levels can be pushed much higher.

    My take on this. If Lance is "considering" a confession, that in itself is a confession. And if he is going to confess, you can be sure it's to save his own ass from the federal government, while at the same time taking down as many others as he can.

    And of course he'll write a bestselling book or three, get paid for movie rights, TV appearances, merchandising, etc.
