NY Times – Armstrong Drops Fight Against Doping Charges
There’s much more to the article than the headline, but that’s the headline. Armstrong does have a statement up explaining why he dropped the fight, but the headline wins the day. My reaction, as a cycling fan, is mixed…
Man… who even knows anymore.
I feel bad for giving up on Lance as a drug-free rider, but I think I did a while ago. Tyler Hamilton kind of destroyed my thinking that cyclists at that level might come out honest.
If I’m wrong and the media won, that sucks.
I hope Lance as a cancer fighter can keep moving strong. He has done so much for cancer awareness that to me outshines his cycling.
I hope for cycling’s sake that a bunch of cool kids are coming up and preparing to destroy the field without drugs. That would be awesome.
