Tonight, Lance Armstrong finally acknowledged that his cycling career was built on a powerful combination of doping and deceit. His admission that he doped throughout his career is a small step in the right direction. But if he is sincere in his desire to correct his past mistakes, he will testify under oath about the full extent of his doping activities.
— United States Anti-Doping Agency CEO Travis T. Tygart’s response to Lance Armstrong’s admission that he used performance-enhancing drugs. Armstrong had maintained for years that he was clean, but he was banned from competing in athletic events last year after declining to appeal USADA’s finding that he had been doping.
