I had to cram all that in to the title and I didn't even credit the maker of this gem. It's by Matthijs Vlot who likes to mish-mash it up. Watch Lance Armstrong recite Creep by Radiohead under Oprah's withering scrutiny. It's not like you have anything better to do, right?
When I hear Americans exclaim, "Who cares about the Lance Armstrong doping scandal?! Nobody cares about bike racing anyway," I want to shake them soundly. A large chunk of the human population around the world cares about bike racing and about bicycling in general, including my family, so up yours, centrist Americans!
Lance Armstrong not only cheated to win seven straight Tour de France titles, he made sure that anyone who didn't want to pump harmful substances in their bodies, or who accused him of doping, would never have a career in cycling. It was like a second full-time job for him—trouncing his competition on and off the course. A liar, a cheat, and a scoundrel. He's not the first—just one of many—and nothing special whatsoever.
