So, I sit here, late night, kids are sleeping, the TV turned off, looking forward to not having a crazy early morning tomorrow and I think about Lance, see a lot of people who follow me on Twitter have asked for my reaction to the case and frankly I have not been able to give one, for anyone who knows me, knows what is going on in my private life is way bigger than anything else in that is going on with a pro sportsman.
But I’ve time here to sit and think
and frankly I think this :
LANCE ARMSTONG Is still and always will be a LEGEND
Yes, it does appear he was a doper along with a lot of people that were in his teams etc
But the statements all stink IMHO, according to most, all the doping stopped in 2006 when Lance retired, but we know thats FAR from true, ex Doper David Miller was quoted as saying “the speed of the peloton now, is much higher than the dopers days” that doesn’t prove anything of course.
Too many people have sold out, most with a “Reason” to as well.
Then we look at the fact that my GC riders in the “Lance ” years were doped up too
Then we look at the bands for Alberto, Frank (Schleck)
Yadda Yadda Yadda
Yes Lance doped, but
Lance inspired me to become a cyclist and save my life, for my kids
Lance has raised money for Cancer
Lance has raised the profile of cycling
Lance has raised awareness of cancer
Lance was still a dead man walking, who came back and won 7 TdF titles , while all his main rivals were doped too
Lance looks good in yellow
So…Thats my take, I know a lot wont like it or think im deluded but without Lance, you wouldn’t be reading this blog, I wouldnt , so Lance Armstong, LiveSTONG , you sir are a LEGEND !!!!!!!!
