I feel pretty sorry for Armstrong but equally confused he would let his legacy be stolen from him in such a manner. I mean the man battled cancer facing off death and accomplished so much around this and then he doesn't want to fight any more to clear the arguably greatest name in cycling history?
Seems a bit fishy to me, especially with his team mates who both tested positive for PEDs accusing him.
He says, "everyone knows who won those seven titles." and
Armstrong called USADA's actions a "charade" and the allegations against him "outlandish and heinous". |
He said: "If I thought for one moment that by participating in USADA's process, I could confront these allegations in a fair setting and - once and for all - put these charges to rest, I would jump at the chance.
"But I refuse to participate in a process that is so one-sided and unfair. Regardless of what Travis Tygart says, there is zero physical evidence to support his outlandish and heinous claims.
"The only physical evidence here is the hundreds of controls I have passed with flying colours. I made myself available around the clock and around the world. In-competition. Out of competition. Blood. Urine. Whatever they asked for I provided. What is the point of all this testing if, in the end, USADA will not stand by it?"
