10 Questions Oprah Should Ask Lance Armstrong

Discussion in 'Biomechanics, Sports and Foot orthoses' started by Kevin Kirby, Jan 15, 2013.


  1. Members do not see these Ads. Sign Up.
    Supposedly, Lance Armstong has been interviewed by Oprah Winfrey and has finally admitted to cheating in cycling, something he has vehemently denied for many years. Here are 10 questions that Oprah should ask Lance.


    That is not to be confused with the ten questions that Oprah probably will ask Lance.


    The interview is to be televised on Oprah's own television channel this Thursday. I'm sure the interview will be very disappointing and have lots of lame excuses from someone who became a multimillionaire by cheating at his sport.

    Thanks to Simon Bartold for drawing my attention to this article in his blog.

    11. Did you really get cancer Lance?.

    Or was the whole thing just a massive scam?.
  4. Can we ever believe what Lance Armstrong says again?? How do you define "credibility" now, Lance?

    Yes, Lance cheated and lied. He also raised an unprecedented 500 million for cancer research through his foundation. For that, I am giving him a pass.

  6. No he did not, look at the information look at what livestrong do the truth is there.

    Livestrong are in the business of cancer awareness.

    I will not go into it but Steven if you look the facts will 1st shock you then get you angry
  7. I'm with Mike on this one, Steven. Livestrong is not doing any cancer research. Livestrong seems to be very much devoted toward providing Lance with a less tarnished image. The following articles are samples of how Lance is one of the most proficient individuals in recent history at duping the public.

    I can strongly recommend Tyler Hamiltons book 'The Secret Race', possibly my favourite Christmas present in 2012. It gives a fascinating insight into the mass doping of cyclists in that era, and Tyler candidly explains why he/they doped.

    Not saying its right, just saying circumstances encouraged them to do it.

    I'm glad I have read the book before I hear what Lance has to say. Tyler deserves (some) credit.
  10. Many more so, but Tyler and Landis get most of the credit in public.

    Hamilton's book is good, but I was a bit disappointed.

    Funny thing is the new found media who loved Lance now hate him, guys was using peds before he turned to cycling as a triathlete, 1000s knew but no one cared.

    The guy is an evil genius, sociopath, narcissist rolled into 1 person, and we will never know if he was a good cyclist or not.

    Everyone on the gear does not level the playing field- this idea will mentioned a lot over the next few days it is not true.

    Agree, but he was a great cyclist- he did the work and had talent. The problem is that there are plenty of others that did the work and had talent that may or may not have been on the juice ... what we will never know is if he was the best cyclist for the reasons you just gave!
  12. EPO turned donkeys into climbing timetrialling freaks.

    He had the drive, but there is way too much noise to know his natural talent. Every test done on him has an * next too it.

    Sorry be discussing this for way too many years now. He started out as a sprinter type and 1 day classic rider who could not climb at all - and became a Grand Tour rider, way too much noise.

    'not normal'

    "The guy is an evil genius, sociopath, narcissist rolled into 1 person, and we will never know if he was a good cyclist or not"

    an accurate description.

    This massive scam wasn't dreamt up by Lance.

    Also, Pat McQuaid (president of the UCI) had to have been IN on the WHOLE thing, the whole damn time, yet keeps his job.

    People keep asking, why doesn't Lance face any jail time the same as Marion Jones did?.

    Well, when you have got friends like this, nobody can touch you.


  15. Thing is the initial dream of Thom Weisel and others changed, when he got cancer and Lance took the ball and ran with it, he changed the play book and kept a few people with him for the ride.

    This idea to make an American cycling champion started early 90s

    And L.A. was nearly moved on for another guy.

    And I certainly don't believe the idea was Lance's.

    But somebody must have passed the idea by Pat McQuaid & given it the OK, while trying to work out how to cover his own arse if the s**t hit the fan. He needs to be handed his P45 & Greg LeMond should take charge.

    And to think this guy was one of my biggest hero's.

  17. you do know that Pat was not UCI pres when this all started don´t you

    Hein Verbruggan Former UCI pres and Thom Weisel

    anyone who cares this explains the tangle web around Lance

  21. I won't be watching because I know he will be quite disappointing and not admit to the full extent of his deceit, cunning, lies, obfuscations, reasons for all his denials and why he made personal attacks on those who told the truth about his years of cheating at his sport. :butcher::boxing::mad:

    So far so good; not many people on Twitter believe a lot of what he is saying...

    one body language expert has said he is lying about when he stopped doping

    Seriously, it wouldn't surprise me in the slightest if he came out & said his cancer was a complete fabrication.

    No excuses for Lance but the entire sport has been dirty for so long it's ludicrous.

    Even Eddy Mercx tested positive for a banned substance in 1969. Lance is guilty he admits it but anyone who believes he is the mastermind behind Team Postal's doping program I feel isn't following closely enough. The UCI may have known about the "dirty test" that brought Lance down, that's why they were so quick to condemn their Golden Boy. Damage control.

    Politics gentleman, had Lance not been Lance and had he not had the profound effect on the sport and been such a sensational cancer survival story, that dirty test would have been public long ago. Had he not come back to cycling we would have never known and the tide of publicity and money the sport at large benefited from would still be intact. They (UCI) swept it under the rug, they're no different than Lance and deserve their pound of condemnation as well.

    Rant over.
  27. it has been dirty sure, but Lance made even worse after Festina

    But I will throw this one out there is cycling the same or more or less dirty than other endurance sports or even sports in general ?

    Cycling is the easy punching bag, but the skeletons in other sports ?

    ps Eddy tested positive 3 times ;)
  28. Give the guy a break for goodness sake - have you ever tried to ride a bike whilst on drugs? It ain't easy - tried it once and landed in a hedge. The man deserves a medal!

    Come on Mark, you aren't claiming that as your own are you?
    I think I saw the singer from the charlatans post it...
    Great call though :)

    Thanks Tracy!!
  32. Lance, to show good faith and sportsmanship and atone to what a liar you have been (not to mention the shame your have brought to the cycling community and those who "believed" in you while you cashed in on their trust and faith), would you be willing to donate some of the $500 million you raised with your bracelets and the Live Strong Company and give at least 100 million dollars to all those that are living with cancer??

    PS:, "Lance, do you think a good "believable" saying on your next set of yellow bracelets should read, "Lie Strong"?

    Shame on you brother!
