I’m starting to wonder if he even had cancer… That it was some sort of PR ploy to deter would be inquirers from pressing too hard. Also he could have used it as an excuse for hormonal based doping (A card he didn’t use but it would have been up his sleeve).

But no. Ill dismiss that conspiracy fiction, I don’t look very dashing in a tinfoil knob hat anyway…

Your insights aptly shed light on another dimension of endurance sports that needs to be fixed before they can “truly” be cleaned up and honestly be called “sports” again.

Let it go. They were all in the game together. Cycling is a difficult sport, in terms of human stamina.

It’s all about money and corruption. It’s sickening how these individuals and their sycophants do.

This is inaccurate. It’s not what Tygart said. Armstrong was not facing any charges in 2004. Tygart did say that an offer of a donation to the USADA was made by an Armstrong representative, and this was confirmed by a now retired USADA official, but there was no overt discussion about it being for anything, much less to drop charges that were not there.

I think the rest of the article is good, but misstatements like this put the veracity of the whole piece in question.
