Don't cry for me, says Lance

2012-08-25 22:41

Aspen, Colorado - Lance Armstrong says he's more at peace now than he has been in a decade.

In his first interview since the US Anti-Doping Agency disciplined Armstrong with a lifetime ban from professional cycling and vacated his seven Tour de France titles, he said, "Nobody needs to cry for me. I'm going to be great."

Still, his ego was bruised after being beaten by 16-year-old Keegan Swirbul at the Power of Four mountain bike race on Saturday. Armstrong finished second, nearly five minutes behind the lanky teenager.

Soon after crossing the finish line and skidding to a stop, Armstrong chatted for a few minutes before saying, "OK, I'm going to go eat a cheeseburger."

He's leaning toward not following through with his plan to run a trail marathon on Sunday.

    Dude you doped yourself to win and now you have been found out so keep shut.You are a disgrace to the sport.You make a mockery of the other competitors who really worked hard to compete in those races.You are not a real winner but a cheat and a fake.Anyone who make excuses for you or accuses the people who discovered your deceit of witch hunting is seriously messed up.

    @omonaija, Dude if he did cheat, they were to stupid to catch him or the others so eager to compete with him that they overdid it to be caught. So the answer is simple, HE REMAINS THE BEST EVER, case closed.

      if he is innocent why stand up to the charges. He is now as great as Hansie.
