Lance Armstrong’s former employee tells tale of vengeance

Last week, Lance Armstrong gave up his fight against doping charges. For two years, Mike Anderson was Armstrong’s personal assistant, during the height of his racing career. Anderson’s story, published by Outside magazine, makes you wonder.

Interestingly, Sally Jenkins, a columnist for the Washington Post who co-wrote Lance Armstrong’s book (It’s Not About the Bike), rode to Armstrong’s defense. She wrote, “Lance Armstrong is a good man. There’s nothing that I can learn about him short of murder that would alter my opinion on that.” Jenkins is also the sportswriter who originally believed Joe Paterno when he said he didn’t know that Jerry Sandusky had been accused of molesting a child.

    Bicycling has been my main interest for 20 years. I remember seeing Lance Armstrong race before anyone not a fan of cycling ever heard of him. Initially, I was inspired by his comeback from cancer. That ended the day he first wore the Tout de France’s Yellow Jersey in 1999 — even back then, anyone with a knowledge of the sport new Armstrong could not have achieved what he achieved without doping. In that 1999 Tour, Lance Armstrong failed a doping control test for corticosteriods; conveniently, he produced a back-dated prescription and Cycling looked the other way and the monster was born.

    Had Lance Armstrong been thrown out of that Tour and banned from Cycling for two years as he should have been, his career might have been over then…

    While I want to watch the Oprah Show, at the same time I do not want to support this Psychopath’s last self-serving plot. The simple fact is Lance Armstrong is facing multiple civil suits that could cost him tens of millions and more important is facing potential criminal indictment by the US Government. He has lost all sponsors and right now, has no source of income.

    By “confessing” on Oprah, he is merely trying to show “redemption” in the public eye, hopefully to prevent criminal action against him. Next will be a book so he can earn some money, a movie…

    Do not let the Lance Armstrong Foundation smokescreen the fact that Lance Armstrong is a despicable person. The foundation was a con to provide cover to his cheating and to further his celebrity lifestyle — fighting cancer was tertiary. Many have provided testimony detailing Armstrong’s contempt for making public appearances on the part of Lance Armstrong Foundation.

    There is simply nothing good about Lance Armstrong.

    How does him “confessing” to Oprah show anything but contempt on his part, and on her part “anything for ratings and a buck”–I have no more respect for her than I do for him.
