    The calves are OK, but he needs to get that upper body into some serious bulking.

    im happy that professional bodybuilding doesnt have problems with performance enhancing drugs (PEDs) which cycling obviously has. the man is an amazing athlete and although everyone in the sport he went up against was also on PEDs - now he is blamed for being a 'cheat'. what does a cheat mean? nearly everyone at the tour de france competitions armstrong won was on PEDs just like him so who exactly did he cheat? the sport clearly now doesnt have a history because what is the official verdict of the winner of the 7 tour de frances armstrong won? see in bodybuilding you can see who won in 1980, 1990, 2000..2011..etc but in this type of cycling you cant. I hope professional bodybuilding doesnt change because clearly it would be a mistake

    This is less of a story than Manti Te'Os girlfriend. Everyone did it, he was just the most prolific. Who cares. Moving on. Apology accepted.

    No big deal that he used, they are all doing it at that level however he simply could have denied it quietly or not answered questions. The fact that he attacked, sued and besmirched people (been dying to use that word lol) really makes him a bad person. Great cyclist, poor human being.

    That stuff is good however that doesn't negate how he sued people, tried to destroy their reputation and ruined some people's careers all because they just told the truth. Yup, he is a model citizen.

    Also I think he profits off of livestrong. There is livestrong the charity and then livestrong.com the company where he makes money.

    He doesn't have much integrity without that you don't have much. You can have all the titles in the world but what good is that if you aren't a good person.

    According to an article in Outside Magazine Armstrong's Livestrong organization does not give any money to cancer research. Cancer "awareness," yes. Cancer research, no.

    Read the whole article by Bill Gifford on OutsideOnline

    On the program side, I learned that Livestrong provides an innovative and expanding suite of direct services to help cancer survivors negotiate our Kafkaesque health care system. Beyond that, though, I found a curiously fuzzy mix of cancer-war goals like “survivorship” and “global awareness,” labels that seem to entail plastering the yellow Livestrong logo on everything from T-shirts to medical conferences to soccer stadiums. Much of the foundation’s work ends up buffing the image of one Lance Edward Armstrong, which seems fair—after all, Livestrong wouldn’t exist without him. But Livestrong spends massively on advertising, PR, and “branding,” all of which helps preserve Armstrong’s marketability at a time when he’s under fire. Meanwhile, Armstrong has used the goodwill of his foundation to cut business deals that have enriched him personally, an ethically questionable move.

    “It’s a win-win,” says Daniel Borochoff, head of the American Institute of Philanthropy, a watchdog group. “He builds up the foundation, and they build up him.”
    Equally interesting is what the foundation doesn’t do. Most people—including nearly everybody I surveyed while reporting this story—assume that Livestrong funnels large amounts of money into cancer research. Nope. The foundation gave out a total of $20 million in research grants between 1998 and 2005, the year it began phasing out its support of hard science. A note on the foundation’s website informs visitors that, as of 2010, it no longer even accepts research proposals.

    Nevertheless, the notion persists that Livestrong’s main purpose is to help pay for lab research into cancer cures. In an online “60 Minutes Overtime” interview after the May broadcast, CBS anchor Scott Pelley said Armstrong’s alleged misdeeds were mitigated because “he has raised hundreds of millions of dollars for cancer research.”
    Pelley isn’t alone in getting that wrong: a search of The New York Times turns up dozens of hits for “Armstrong” and “cancer research.” An Associated Press story from August 2010 described Livestrong as “one of the top 10 groups funding cancer research in the United States.” The comments section of any article about Armstrong will inevitably include messages like this one from ESPN.com: “keep raising millions for cancer research lance, and ignore the haters.” At one point, the foundation brought in a PR consultant to try and clarify the messaging, but Armstrong himself says there’s only so much they can do. “We can’t control what everybody says they’re wearing the bracelets for,” he told me.

    Default President of UCI admits Armstrong and others were given "drug warning"

    Can it get any worse for Armstrong and cycling? Apparently there is very little "sympathy for the devil."



    President of UCI admits Armstrong and others were given "drug warning"

    LANCE Armstrong and other top pro cyclists were repeatedly warned by the sports world governing body when they were teetering on testing positive to banned drugs.
