    The Program

    Hope this isn't a repost.

    The Lance Armstrong movie, "The Program" is worth watching. It is obviously an un-authorized biography of most of his racing career.

    Paints an honest (I think) and not very flattering picture of Lance and his participation in PED's

    The actor who portrays Lance actually got his mannerisms pretty close I think.

    Hi Maad,

    I don't know who the actor was. But as I said, he did a pretty convincing job with LA's mannerisms.

    It was really interesting as to how hard one particular sports journalist pursued him.

    If you like to read, this is a great book- The Secret Race: Inside the Hidden World of the Tour de France.

    It is not a Lance slammer, but an in depth look at the peloton as well as an inside look at Lance. It changed my views quite a bit. Going to find your movie though and watch that too!

    Great question! I have been scouring the Hulu/Netflix for it since I am no longer on the cable/sattelite feed.
