Armstrong has given up the fact that he could ever compete again. He knew that the only way that he could get his ban reduced was to talk to USADA, so there's no way he would tesify under oath. His life as he knows it is over.

Right now he's just being a baby that he's against the agency that destroyed his career/life. It's hard to believe this guy can be any type of role model to anyone.

USADA doesn't need him. Armstrong can never tell the whole truth whoever he talks to anyway, so there's no point to hear any more stories from him. We at the clinic knows the truth, that's enough. As long as he suffers for the rest of his life, I'm satisfied.

Competing again was simply lower on the totem pole than staying out of jail and/or losing substantially all of his money.

Shows just how little class he's got.
Up to the courts to decide how much of his fortune he'll be able to keep. Their business now.
Won't spend a calorie on him anymore. Good riddance!

Of course there is absolutely no surprise here.

Armstrong's paid thugs don't appear to realise that the jig is up, they are on the losing side. Their ridiculous press releases aren't helping Armstrong's credibility, they are just confirming what a turd he is and what lowlifes they are.

What is this "international tribunal" thing that Armstrong keeps harping about? Since there is no such entity, does he think it will all be organized on his behalf?

I think it's just a way for him to justify not talking to USADA. "We said we'll talk to an international tribunal, but there isn't one, so we're not gonna talk because USADA has no jurisdiction blah blah blah."

Of course! He'll be the tribunal's champion too. Beating all those other tribunals.. ??!!???!!!

He must be hiding some really bad, jail time, felony stuff to not set the cat amongst the pigeons over at USADA.

In all seriousness, this sets him up beautifully for the next scam. Whatever form it takes you can believe it will be worse than this one and this one isn't even half over. I'm genuinely looking forward to the next scam.

Anyone got any news on the UCI's meeting regarding their new schemes? The one that had the "red thread" or whatever B.S. they used.

So with Lance Armstrong no longer intending to co-operate with the USADA, does this clear the way for the the USADA to commence the prosecutions against Johann Bruyneel et al?

Simply catering to his audience, whatever remains of it. At this point, it doesn't even include Joe Sixpack.

Perhaps it is a PR ploy for a potential jury. Though, while he wouldn't be past such a strategy - who cares.

Even if just a PR strategy succeeded in making a potential jury member sympathetic, any decent prosecution would destroy that immediately when they point out that

1. There is professional cycling in the US
2. Lance doped while on the US Olympic team and while riding for the US Postal Service
3. Lance is an American
4. The US authorities (e.g. USADA) are in charge*

*Kind of like pursuing tax evasion when not reporting your worldwide income to the IRS

Anyone stupid enough to fall for this PR nonsense would be quickly disabused of Lance's honesty when confronted with any one of the above observations.

Dave.
