• Whoa! Lance Armstrong: ‘I’d Probably Cheat Again’

    It’s a measure of humility and candor you don’t usually see from public figures today.

    For a long time, Lance Armstrong was the international spokesman for millions of people fighting for their life against cancer. But that all ended when he was caught doping.  

    Lance Armstrong was subsequently stripped of his seven Tour de France titles, and has been sued by several organizations for fraud. But, surprisingly, he says he would likely not change a thing.

    Monday on BBC News the retired cyclist said considering the amount of money that he helped raise in for cancer research, he would “probably” cheat again if given the same 1990s standards and circumstances.

    “If I was racing in 2015, no, I wouldn’t do it again, because I don’t think you have to,” Armstrong said. “If you take me back to 1995, when it was completely and totally pervasive, I’d probably do it again. People don’t like to hear that, but that’s the honest answer.”
