Report: Armstrong to Testify Against Others in Cycling



Text  



Way at the end of this CBS Report of Lance Armstrong admitting to Oprah about his illegal doping, is this:

CBS News has also learned Armstrong has indicated he may be willing to testify against others involved in illegal doping.

Once all the information was out and his reputation shattered, Armstrong defiantly tweeted a picture of himself on a couch at home with all seven of the yellow leader’s jerseys on display in frames behind him. But the preponderance of evidence in the USADA report and pending legal challenges on several fronts apparently forced him to change tactics after more a decade of denials.

I like it. If you’re going to go down in a sport that everyone knows is shady, you might as well bring the lot down with you. I assume eventually his argument will be, “yeah, I cheated. But so did everybody else and I was still the best.”
