In a January interview with Oprah, Lance Armstrong, winner of seven consecutive Tour de France titles, admitted to using performance-enhancing drugs while competing.
Sports fundamentalist, blogger and radio show host Dave Ferguson weighed in on the scandal during a recent interview with Writers Talk.
“Lance basically had no other alternative (other than to come clean),” said Ferguson.
Many prior members of Armstrong’s cycling team had admitted to using banned substances and openly told media Armstrong was part of the doping scheme as well.
In 2012, after denying allegations made by team members, Armstrong was stripped of his seven titles.
As for Armstrong’s personal future and his cycling career, Ferguson thinks the cyclist will be just fine.
“He’s a highly competitive individual,” said Ferguson, “He still wishes to compete.”
A triathlon competition is said to be in the works for the star cyclist.
What do you think? Should Armstrong cease and desist, or boot and rally?
