Back in May 2010 Floyd Landis, former teammate of Armstrong's, made some quite shocking allegations about Lance. A few months after the allegations were made Floyd sat down with Paul Kimmage for an interview. In that interview Landis claims that Lance not only doped, but led the doping program for the team. These allegations are not the first made against Lance.
For many reasons, I had a hard time accepting the fact that Lance doped. Armstrong was both the most inspirational while controversial superstar athlete the United States ever produced. I want to believe in that. I want to look at someone I've admired for years and say, "You beat the odds. Good night... you beat the freaking odds."
