Pretty standard LA deflection tactics. He's still of the opinion that his doping is irrelevant, that he won those tours fair and square, and that he should also be untouchable because he survived cancer and he is Lance Armstrong.

He's pretty monstrous, really.

"It's been a difficult couple of weeks; but I have had worse", superb! What a man! Do you think he will go for President of the USA?

Would be a shoo-in for the Republican nomination, they love wealthy hackneyed idealistic speeches by flag-waving scrappers who want to "stand up and fight for freedom". He just needs to show he is in favour of guns, wars, oil, bare-faced lying and behind-the-scenes manipulation and coercion. Well, he's got most of those sussed already.

Moneygrabbing bully, can lie for years without batting an eyelid - a natural for politics.

As for the actors and zzz-list celebs, they are easily impressed and merely a subset of his blindly loyal fanbase. Stupid famous people love following/fawning publicly over someone they admire (I suspect it's in the hope of getting some back, as they're invariably insecure, needy types).

They were probably the ones during the TdF when he was trying to avoid the 'inconvenient' dope tests, poor lamb.

Did Nightrider 2013 for Parkinson's UK, doing it again this year just for the fun of it and to raise more money.

"It's been a difficult couple of weeks; but I have had worse", is the best quote since Colonel Custer said,"Where did all these fucking indians come from?"

I used to like Armstrong and thought a lot of it was was sour grapes by other riders due to his talent - boy was i wrong there Angry

However after getting over cancer and getting back onto a bike to race competively takes a lot and although he used drugs to get there you cant knock him for his charity work.

I know people will say his charity was only a success because he was a success due to cheating, which is right but at least he did try to do some good for others albeit through cheating.

If you must break the law, do it to seize power: in all other cases observe it. Gaius Julius Caesar.
