    Whenever I see anything on Lance I always remember how many guys used to wax lyrical about him day in day out especially in cycling circles, I remember one instructor telling us that Lance was a 'freak of nature' and explaining how his blood could move more oxygen around his body than us mere mortals etc etc etc .. they must have bawled their eyes out when the truth was revealed, there were so many true believers who really used him as inspiration in their daily lives. He really knew that too.
    You don't get a medal for switching alliances just before the result, as it becomes apparent the other team is set to win.

    Armstrong was a fake and a fibber, but just for interest, I swear I read an article once about people who have 'thicker blood' with more oxgygen, enabling them to keep going in cold temps that would leave the rest of us hypothermic. I think they're in Finland. I'll try to find it.
    We 'embraced' the missing Bob Harrod case as requested but 6 years on, are still waiting for further guidance

    Aagghhh, can't find it! May have read it 20 years ago, but read it I did.

    This article says why Finns are special and a lot of genetic research is carried out there, but doesn't mention the 'thick blood families'. I recall they are country people who have spent generations cross-country skiing to get around.

    Ah well, maybe I'll stumble across it one day.

    Lance Armstrong FINALLY admits to crashing into two parked cars in Aspen after getting his girlfriend to say she was behind the wheel

    Lance Armstrong has pleaded guilty to careless driving after hitting two parked cars with his SUV in Aspen

    He originally agreed to let girlfriend Anna Hansen take the blame to avoid media attention

    A valet at the Aspen Art Museum, where the two had attended a party, confirmed to police that Armstrong had been driving the car

    A plea deal with prosecutors leaves Armstrong covering court fees and with a small fine, but closes the case and avoids a court appearance

    Drugs cheat Lance Armstrong backs investigation into cycling's murky past

    Report turned up no evidence to sustain previous allegations Armstrong paid the cycling body to cover up a positive doping test

    However explains in great detail how the Union Cycliste Internationale acted favorably toward Armstrong - a rider dubbed 'cycling's pop star

    Armstrong said: 'I am grateful to CIRC for seeking the truth and allowing me to assist in that search. I am deeply sorry for many things I have done'

    Armstrong is trying to overturn a life ban imposed by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency

    He was stripped of his seven Tour titles for doping on every one of his wins from 1999-2005

    On Tuesday, a U.S. District Judge agreed with Armstrong in part, ruling that some evidence about widespread doping in cycling was relevant to his defense in the government’s $100 million case against him.

    The federal government is putting Lance Armstrong on trial next year for civil fraud.
