Lance Plotting Revenge

There was a report today on ESPN that Lance Armstrong is planning on "coming clean" and releasing all details about doping. Included in this will be dishing details on all the riders who are dishing on him. According to sources, Armstrong will provide evidence that the riders who recently "came clean" are in fact lying about many details. Specifics would include the assertions made by riders like Levi and Hincapie who claimed to have stopped doping in or around 2007.

I believe many riders felt comfortable coming out and telling half truths because they were so utterly certain that Armstrong would never come out himself and spill the beans. Well now that Armstrong entire empire is falling apart he has decided to turn the tables.

This could get very interesting.

I predict Armstrong gives some good info on Contador doping during the time they raced together and Contador won the TDF.

It would be just like Lance to "come clean" while motivated by revenge.

Good. It'll serve two purposes

1) Make Lance look like an even bigger dirtbag.

2) Clean up the sport more, because riders will realize that no secret is safe when it comes to doping.

I went to ESPN and didn't see this story. So I am going to lock this rather than shove it into the big thread.

OP if I missed the story about "coming clean" and "revenge" please start a thread with a link and I'll agree that is new content and would be a worthwhile thread.
