Lance Armstrong Confession: Change Cycling Now Calls for Full Confession After Oprah Appearance
The founder of the lobby group Change Cycling Now has urged Armstrong to confess his mistakes.
The founder of the lobby group Change Cycling Now has urged Lance Armstrong to make a confession regarding his drug usage over the last several years.
Jamie Fuller and Armstrong had had regular exchanges after Fuller told Armstrong he needed to talk to the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA), reported the New York Post. Jaime Fuller said he spoke to Armstrong for an hour over the phone last month explaining the need to turn his life around.
Lance Armstrong is bathing in misery as his ranking in likeable world status has plummeted.
Armstrong, a former seven-time Tour de France champion, had spent over 10 years denying accusations of drug usage before coming clean earlier this year.
The cyclist poured his heart out to Oprah Winfrey in January, confessing his usage of performance-enhancing drugs before his victories, and saying it became easy to repeat these "perfect" lies, reported the Post.
"This story was so perfect for so long - you overcome [cancer], you win the Tour de France seven times, you have a happy marriage, you have children. It's just this mythic story, and that wasn't true," he said.
But Fuller was not as disappointed about the drug usage as his arrogance.
"What upset me most all the other things that surrounded him, the way he abused people, the way that he just climbed all over people, to win at all costs," he said.
