Love him or hate him, Lance Armstrong has bigger balls than just about anyone else on the planet – and he’s only got one. He has vehemently denied allegations by a French paper that he used a banned substance, called EPO, during his first Tour win. Lance, for good reason I think, has problems with tests being ran on seven year old urine samples. Who was in charge of keeping them? Who administered the tests? Personally, I think the French are just really bad losers, which is surprising since they’re so good at losing (WWI and WWII come to mind). The strongest evidence that Lance doesn’t and hasn’t been doping comes from his actions.
… Armstrong had proposed before the Tour that all of his urine samples be kept for tests over the next 10 years.
Why would he suggest that? He can’t possibly be so arrogant that he thinks he can dope and keep the urine samples for 10 years of testing. The best part is that Lance is now considering another spin at the Tour because he thinks it’s the best way to anger the French.
You see what I’m saying? His answer to doping allegations is to get tested and to keep samples for ten years while he’s kicking the French’s collective asses for an eighth win in a row. Huge balls, Lance. How you ride a bike with them is a feat in its own right.
Dirty French Bastards.
Lance has continually been under fire from the French sporting press; they do hate the fact that American(s) have shown up at the cycling party. A few years ago, they actually suggested in one paper that Lance had FAKED his cancer. Unbelievable.
They had the same distain for Greg Lemond in the late 80’s/early 90’s. They were a little kinder to Jonathon Boyer (the first American to ever compete in the TdF), but then again, he was never a threat to win the thing.
Regarding Greg LeMond:
“The problem with Lance is that you’re either a liar or you’re out to destroy cycling,” said LeMond who won in 1986, 1989 and 1990.
“Lance is ready to do anything to keep his secret but I don’t know how long he can convince everybody of his innocence.”
LMFAO @ “Huge balls, Lance. How you ride a bike with them is a feat in its own right. “
