I have a strong dislike for dishonesty, especially someone who not only cheats to win but repeatedly lies about it, so I hope he gets it up the ass.  Although I know he won't.

Let's pretend for a minute that the cycling bodies actually care about this. How could they implement a system to actually clean up the sport?

They have an extensive drug testing program in place already. Riders are tested constantly throughout the world, even in the off season. Also the punishment for getting caught is quite severe. The problem is the doctors and athletes involved are too good at what they do.

And the organizers hate it. It makes the sport look bad and teams have been having an increasingly hard time finding sponsors.

Not sure what more could be done, a more accurate test, if that is possible?

Hire Lance Armstrong to head the drug testing program.

Anybody watch the interview? I thought he was surprisingly forthcoming. The only thing that was puzzling was how he wouldn't answer if what happened in the hospital was true or not.

I did and I felt the same way as you.

So what did he say specifically regarding the issue at hand?

That he doped for all his tour wins.

Yeah, he was about as open as you could expect. Said exactly what he used and when, and confirmed that a lot of people who he previously said were lying were actually telling the truth.  He wouldn't name any other people who were using or say bad things about people who helped him, which is fine by me. He was there to admit what he did, not expose the entire tour.

He took issue with a claim that he tested positive for a Swiss race in 2001 and then made a payoff to make it go away (said it never happened). And as I mentioned he had an odd response to whether he did or didn't admit taking peds to his dr. during cancer treatment.

He also said he never pressured anyone on his team to use, but admitted that as the head of the team it may have been perceived that they needed to follow his lead.

It was probably in the contract for the interview that he had to be.

He stands to lose millions now. The SCA, the USPS, former teammates and the people that Lance sued or threatened to sue for "lying" about him can all start lining up for a piece. Heck, the British Sunday Times wants the money back they paid (plus damages and fees) to settle a libel case Lance brought against them in 2006.

Perhaps his cancer has returned, and he doesn't care anymore.

From what I've seen (very little), there didn't seem to be a whole lot of actual, you know, remorse.

I'm of the mind that endorsement deals aren't going to unsell product, so regardless of current perception, he's no longer responsible fiscally for them. The winning money, well, if they award the medals to the next in line, he should hand the pot down to the successor.

As for the doping stuff, it's been said before - drugs don't turn donkeys into race horses (or at least, performance enhancing ones don't slywink).

Perhaps this is his contribution to the sport - to be the toppled figurehead that breaks the vicious cycle of upcoming athletes being pressured into drug use to compete.

Tiger Woods should do the same thing.  He could endeavor to break Wilt Chamberlain's seemingly impossible record of 10,000.   Hold a press conference and announce the goal.  Maybe 2,000 each year over the next 5 years.  He could do it if he was really committed.  I bet his golf mojo would return while pursuing his quest to pass Wilt.
