Ride Clean

 Unless your head's been in the sand for the past weeks you'll have heard that Lance Armstrong has finally come 'clean' (ironic) and admitted to the world that he took performance enhancing drugs and illegal blood transfusions.
 Like a lot of people I watched the Oprah interview where he told the world he cheated to win all 7 of his Tour De France titles.
 Within the slightly tame last ditch attempt to control the media explosion surrounding him he was asked about Betsy Andreu. This is the women that told the world years ago that she saw him admit to drug taking to a doctor. Good old Lance then went on to destroy her reputation with lawsuits and vulgar insults. But even with all his effort put into trying to look apologetic and humble he still came out with this nugget...

ARMSTRONG: And I -- I think she'd be OK with me saying this, but I'm going to take the liberty to say it. And I said, "Listen. I called you crazy. I called you a bitch. I called you all these things, but I never called you fat."  

It pretty much confirmed to me what a jerk/bully he really must be. Here's hoping the current generation of Cyclists are clean. 

Limited addition prints will be available so stay tuned and here's to riding clean!
