That’s a lot of speculation about what Lance is going to say. I don’t think it’s possible for him to make right all the things he did wrong, and certainly not in one interview. But it is possible that he won’t claim he had to do wrong for the greater good.

A lot of people have good reason to be angry with and disappointed in Lance. Let’s wait and see what he says before we decide that his interview with Oprah is one more reason.

As a former category 2 bicycle racer from the 1980s I have stood behind Lance however if he fesses up to everything and expects to be allowed to compete in return I say NO! The best way to slow doping down is to have a mandatory permanent lifetime ban with loss of all career wins. You become a non person in all sports.
Did I ever dope? I was going to go as far as I could without doping and I did OK but nothing spectacular and outside my own team no one would have known who I was….. but man it was fun!

The Peleton of the Armstrong era was posting times that today’s clean racing champions, even armed with better bicycles and better training science, cannot match. The whole sport was juicing.

Wouldn’t he be even more motivated to use the uninterrupted, softball questions only time to tell his side of the story?

To take the 40 or so minutes to tell a story of how he has been persecuted and lied about.

I don’t expect Oprah to go all “hardline” on him.

We will see.
