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.
