Lance Armstrong Exclusive Interview | Cyclingnews.com
Agreed - The Tour IS a stunt.My generation was no different than any other. The 'help' has evolved over the years but the fact remains that our sport is damn hard, the Tour was invented as a 'stunt, and very tough mother f**kers have competed for a century and all looked for advantages. From hopping on trains a 100 years ago to EPO now. No generation was exempt or 'clean'. Not Merckx, not Hinault, not LeMond, not Coppi, not Gimondi, not Indurain, not Anquetil, not Bartali, and not mine.
The sport is a stunt.
Its business model died generations ago.
If we follow it, write about it, photograph it (or even post online about it...) we enable it atmo.
I believe its impossible to change the professional sport without capping its history first.
We get the entertainment we deserve.
