A quick list of Armstrong lies

The Actovign was for the diabetic mechanic
The Cortisone was for a saddle sore
He does not know his Vo2
He stopped working with Ferrari when he was convicted
His climbing bike weighed 21 pounds
He could increase his Hct from 39 to 48.5 by sleeping in a tent
That he paid his teammates bonuses, in fact he withheld payment to many of them
That he would be tested "Any time, any where" by Catlin
His Marriage vows

Please add your favorites.

I only used Ferrari for a training program because Carmichael just wasn't cutting it even though I was promoting his training program to everyone. I just found it, well, substandard to Dr Ferrari's because everyone knows that Ferrari is known for developing training programs that only involve riding...

He "Donated" $500,000 to the UCI for a drug testing machine (that did not exist until years later)
He said that he did not remember how much the donation was for.

"The check is in your mouth" and "I won't cum in your mail"
 
"I returned home that day after a long training ride to find a man chasing me as I rode up to the house. He stopped me and told me he was from the French laboratory and was here to test me. I had never heard of labs or governments doing drug testing and I had no idea who this guy was or whether he was telling the truth.

"I've been tested in-competition and out-of-competition by USADA, by WADA, by the UCI, and by testing authorities at all the events in which I have competed, but I was unaware that in France the government tests athletes and takes the position it can test any athlete residing in or visiting France. I also had never heard of a laboratory (as opposed to an anti-doping organization) sending testers to collect samples.

"We asked the tester for evidence of his authority. We looked at his papers but they were far from clear or impressive and we still had significant questions about who he was or for whom he worked. I was there with Johan Bruyneel and two other people. We told the tester we wanted to check with the UCI to confirm who he was and to make sure he wasn't just some French guy with a backpack and some equipment to take my blood and urine.

"Johan stayed with him and in his presence called the UCI to find out what was going on. We asked if it was OK for me to run inside and shower while they made their calls and the tester said that was fine.

"As soon as they completed the phone calls, which took about 20 minutes, we started the tests. Johan had confirmed with the UCI that the tester had authority from the French government to take samples. I immediately provided blood, urine and hair samples – all the samples that he requested, as he requested. All this was done within 20 minutes of returning home from my ride and finding the tester at my home.

"I did not try to evade or delay the testing process that day. I had just returned from an all day training session, wasn't sure who this French man at my home was, and as soon as the UCI confirmed that he was authorised to conduct the tests, I let him take all the samples he requested.

"The drug collection forms we both signed state that we started the testing just 20 minutes after I arrived home. In addition, the form asked the tester to state if there were any irregularities or further observations from the testing process and to that he wrote "no". I have learned that after the tests were all negative, the laboratory has now suggested that the 20-minute delay should be investigated.

"I find it amazing that I've been tested 24 times without incident and the first test I do in France results in more outrageous allegations and negative leaks to the press. This is just another example of the improper behaviour by the French laboratory and the French anti-doping organisations.

"I am sorry that they are disappointed that all the tests were negative, but I do not use any prohibited drugs or substances. As always, I'm available anytime and anywhere to be tested. It is this sort of behaviour that hurts the entire system and causes me and many other athletes to call for reforms in general and an improvement in the conduct of French laboratories and authorities in particular."

I will not take payment for riding, then taking $1,000,000 for the TDU and $2,000,000 for the Giro.

Told Primier Rann's office that the $1,000,000 was all going to LAF...when none of it was.

I just read on twitter that Lance Armstrong is suing both TFF and E. M.

Cool. I hope the Hog joins.

We should include the Hog on this list as well because his ability to lie is legendary.

Benoit Joachim: "Johan Bruyneel's great gift is that he's a liar"
Savoldelli:
"He still owes me my share of the prize money from the 2005 Tour we won with Discovery. He was just never honest with me,”

Birds of a feather

What a waste of time!

Be my guest. You are obviously free to voice your opinions and rants. Well, unless you live in PRC.

But in my view, what a waste of time and energy! :p But don't let that stop you. I just hope you are not too disappointed if Lance doesn't notice. :D

Well on the contrary yes he does care. One of the reasons for his comeback is how is being seen and how his children will see him in years to come, when they see things on the internet. He should care because if he does go into politics, he will be taken to the cleaners...

Q: And those test results are accessible in various ways. So -- and I'm not saying this is my view -- but one could put forward an argument that you're just doing this for the American audience because they know who Catlin is -- he's American, it's PR.

A: I think you're wrong there. If you ask any anti-doping lab in the world, believe me, they know Don Catlin. He's beyond reproach. They can test all they want. I've already had USADA come, WADA come, UCI come out of competition. Those will continue. You add in Damsgaard, you add in Catlin, you add in probably some surprise AFLD controls, whatever. It's a bit of a nuisance if it's the wrong time of the day, but no problem. I don't care. Just like I didn't care before.
