Those of us lucky enough to live in Australia just had the opportunity to watch a 4 Corners episode about Lance Armstrong and the mess that is being dragged up after the USADA report. To those who have read The Secret Race, there wasn’t a lot of news. But to Joe Public, it would have been an eye opener.
The biggest news for me was Phil Liggett basically making a soft admission that Lance doped. “…I find it hard to believe Lance didn’t do it.”
Dick Pound also dropped a clanger saying Hein Verbruggen blames the fans for the doping.
If you are outside Australia, you can see a lot of the interviews on the ABC website. It is worth a look.
The extended interview with Phil Anderson makes him look bad. Really bad.
“You know for me … he’ll always be the champion that won seven tours… I can only name half of the riders that got second during those tours.” – Phil Anderson
