Lance Armstrong

Lance Edward Armstrong (born September 18, 1971) is an American former professional road racing cyclist. Armstrong is the 1993 professional world champion, and won the Tour de France a record seven consecutive times from 1999 to 2005. However, in 2012, he was banned from sanctioned Olympic sports for life as a result of long-term doping offenses. As part of those sanctions, all results going back to August 1998, including his seven Tour wins, were voided.

Pain is temporary. It may last a minute or an hour or a day or a year but eventually it will subside and something else will take its place. If I quit however it lasts forever.

I had a hard time because of the heat. It was a really hard day but I felt strong

The interrogations the French and everything going on hasn't set too well with him

Then the first day I put the bike clothes back on Luke was like 'What are you doing? I thought you quit your job.' Then I came back an hour later all bloody and he thought that was the coolest thing.

Birthdays don't really matter much anymore ... for me I sort of have a new birthday and that's October 2nd the day I was diagnosed ... the day we all sort of look to and mark these milestones by one year two year five year 10 year. Hopefully I have a 50 year.

Sitting here today dealing with all this stuff again knowing if I were to go back there's no way I could get a fair shake on the roadside in doping control or the labs.

I know people who have ridden with him. I can tell you he's one very competitive guy. Very competitive there's no talking. A few minutes of warm-up time a little chitchat then you go.

I'm pleased the UCI is investigating this entire matter thoroughly because any professional investigation will reveal that the allegations made by a French sports tabloid have no basis because I never used any performance-enhancing drugs

I go on 'Larry King Live.'

The last week looks really tough the toughest we have ever done. It will be much better to have a stronger second half than a strong first half.

Winning is about heart not just legs. It's got to be in the right place.

I think we have fielded our strongest team ever with this formation

Lance always has been motivated by people who don't believe him or doubt him.

Protocol wasn't followed and there is no back-up sample to confirm what they say is a positive test

Those are motivating moments for me. That's the way I can give back to someone who is in the same position I was.

If you consider my situation: a guy who comes back from arguably you know a death sentence why would I then enter into a sport and dope myself up and risk my life again? That's crazy. I would never do that. No. No way.

The fact is that cycling in France is in the process of going through one of its toughest periods ... They haven't won for twenty years now so naturally it's harder for them to accept.

I'm not saying that spending on wars and terrorism is a bad thing ... This Week with George Stephanopoulos.

I got the impression he understood my position

It's a dream scenario for me.
