Armstrong To Le Monde: ‘Impossible’ To Win Tour Without Doping

By

The dirty past of the Tour de France came back Friday to haunt the 100th edition of cycling’s showcase race, with Lance Armstrong telling a newspaper he couldn’t have won without doping.

Armstrong’s interview with Le Monde was surprising on many levels, not least because of his long-antagonistic relationship with the respected French daily that first reported in 1999 that corticosteroids were found in the American’s urine as he was riding his way to the first of his seven Tour wins.
In response, Armstrong had complained that he was being persecuted by “vulture journalism, desperate journalism.”
