Lance Armstrong confession gets specific in Oprah Winfrey interview
Liz ClarkeWith no tears and little emotion, Lance Armstrong acknowledged that he won all seven of his record Tour de France championships with the help of performance-enhancing drugs and that he acted as a bully who needed to “win at all costs” in the first of his two-part interview with Oprah Winfrey on Thursday night.
Armstrong added that he believed then, as he does now, that winning cycling’s most grueling race multiple times would have been impossible without the help of banned substances during what he characterized as the EPO era.
“That’s like saying. ‘We have to have air in our tires or water in our bottles,’ ” Armstrong told Winfrey when asked if he felt that in order to keep winning, he had to keep doping. “That was, in my view, part of the job.”
