Encourage others to burn and then sell yours as rare collectible.

I've got one that I'll sell for $15. It's a collectors item. I swear.

I really don't care about the doping or the lying, I've done a fair amount of both in my life - purely recreational, of course.

I think it was a pretty level playing field considering. There were some incredible moments in those TdF's and I treasure them...

I tend to agree. He's was still better than most. If only he wasn't such a jackass.

Stick a hypodermic needle (without the sharp needle) in the hat and wear it

Non-doping, sort of...

That descent where his rival, can't get the name right now, flatted on the hot asphalt, horrible crash, Lance does a MTB, CX, deal over a field. That was bike handling.

Doping, probably...

Some Italian was calling him a doper, and the accuser went off in a break. Armstrong powers out of the peleton and solo crosses a gap of like 4 minutes to join the break, killing the break's chances.
