The Armstrong Lie trailer

I’m fascinated by this. I’m fascinated by doping. I don’t like it but that is a simple answer and the view is often cheater and that is the end of it. Trouble is it isn’t the end of it, it’s incredibly complicated and the web weaved in sport that traps athletes is big. Armstrong needs to be documented, understood and hopefully we can understand some more. I also hope the anti-doping bodies learn, that cycling federations learn and the UCI too. The problem is fundamental, not a rogue rider here and there but, a system that is well known by all, innocent or otherwise. There is so much more to learn and so much more to do. I still don’t think it’s worth air-brushing Armstrong out of the history of the sport, unless we are going to do that to every rider that has admitted to doping or been caught. Ok, Lance was king doper, did it bigger and better than anyone else but, that can’t be an excuse for the others. What ever we think, I reckon a lot of us will perversely want to see this documentary.
