Lance On The Defense! Armstrong Responds To Latest Doping Drama

| Filed under: DrugsZportzLegal MattersLance ArmstrongFrancophilia


As we mentioned earlier, record-breaking cyclist Lance Armstrong is in the middle of some major drama with the French anti-doping agency AFLD due to a drug test he took last month.

Despite being found drug-free after testing, the douches at AFLD are claiming Lance "did not respect the obligation to remain under the direct and permanent observation" of the doctor!

The AFLD is still looking into a proper punishment, but many are worried they're trying to screw with Lance's shot of competing in this year's Tour de France.

As for Armstrong, he's had enough with the witch hunt. The drug-FREE cyclist is speaking out. He says:

"Outrageous reports yesterday coming out of France allege that I 'misbehaved' during a recent unannounced drug test performed by the French government while I was training in southern France in early March. This 24th test, which included a blood test, a urine test, and a test of a substantial quantity of my hair, was also negative. I returned home that day after a long training ride to find a man chasing me as I rode up to the house."

The problem started when Lance took a 20 minute shower while his manager, Johan Bruyneel, checked the stalker official's credentials. You can't just have any psycho putting needles into Lance!!!

Armstrong continued:

"I also had never heard of a laboratory (as opposed to an anti-doping organization) sending testers to collect samples. We asked the tester for evidence of his authority. We looked at his papers but they were far from clear or impressive and we still had significant questions about who he was or for whom he worked. I was there with Johan Bruyneel and two other people. We told the tester we wanted to check with the UCI to confirm who he was and to make sure he wasn’t just some French guy with a backpack and some equipment to take my blood and urine. Johan stayed with him and in his presence called the UCI to find out what was going on. We asked if it was OK for me to run inside and shower while they made their calls and the tester said that was fine."

And there you have it. Lance only left to shower after getting permission. But why would they send a lab jockey to do the tests?

Lance adds:

"I did not try to evade or delay the testing process that day. I had just returned from an all day training session, wasn’t sure who this French man at my home was, and as soon as the UCI confirmed that he was authorized to conduct the tests, I let him take all the samples he requested. I find it amazing that I've been tested 24 times without incident and the first test I do in France results in more outrageous allegations and negative leaks to the press. This is just another example of the improper behavior by the French laboratory and the French anti-doping organizations. I am sorry that they are disappointed that all the tests were negative, but I do not use any prohibited drugs or substances."

Leave Armstrong alone!

He's got another Tour de France to win!

    This is so unlike the French. Usually they immediately surrender.

  13. 13

    Perez, with what authority do you make the statement that Armstrong is drug-free? You know this because…? Considering his history, he's probably very much NOT drug-free.

  14. 14

    WHO CARESSS!!!!!!! LAME.

    It's been a long-standing effort to nail him on doping charges. I hope he continues to test clean .. go Lance.

  17. 17

    Well if past experience is any guide, Armstrong might win the Tour de France. Every other odd development is a consequence of that possibility.

  18. 18

    So sick of France and this Tour De France sh!t.
    They are getting ridiculous now.
    They have tested him a million times now over the years and they have produced nothing.
    France, your guys suck, they can't win, get over it.
    The riders need to boycott this stupid race for a year.

  19. 19

    damn…24 drug tests…just what needs to be tested for that often…sounds like the french just have a mad on for the american again…

    Re: Leon
    sorry, i did not mean any harm.

    Dear One-Ball: Nobody cares.

    Re: Leon – edymond is hole

  23. 23

    I think instead of testing Lance, they should just let their guys get their 'roid on and look the other way. Then maybe they would have a snowball's chance in hell of winning their own race.

    Re: derek1

    And what history would that be? He has passed tests for the last 10 years. They have never found a thing. Blood, urine, hair…..nothing.
    Just surrender already you french pussies. Thats what you're good at.

  25. 25

    Somehow what Lance is saying sounds suspicious to me. But here is another good opportunity for French-bashing, name-calling and what have you. Why are the americans so jealous of the French ?

  26. 26

    Mark my words. You will NEVER see Lance Armstron submit to a drug test under direct supervision. NEVER!! That ish is just not going to happen!

    For obvious reasons…

  27. 27

    I am NOT on DRUGS I am NOT on DRUGS the only thing I have ever done that I am ashamed of is EAT A LITTLE CROW?

  28. 28

    I cannot believe how rude to French people some comments can be !
    French people don't want to take him down. This tests are performed in France because the race is in France .. as simple as that !
    Would you write things like that if the tests were done in England ?
    Ans as for french winning the tour de France, it is done … big time, thank you.
    I live in the Us, I like this country but don't be so rude. (sorry for my english)

    He should have stayed retired. That's what people who love the attention and celebrity do, they over stay their welcome. They finally leave on a BAD note.

  30. 30

    According to those that think MJ is a pedophile….two allegaions and your're out! Or 2 and you're guilty! Sorry Lance. This is the 2nd time in less than 4 years. You are a doper dude! All those Tour De France's unfortunately are tainted. Roid head!

  31. 31

    He is NOT drug free, he has just never tested positive for any drugs. That is a difference.
    And if you look at some people who rode with him with US postal…..Tyler Hamilton, Flyod Landis (being the big names) raises questions, let alone the behaviour of Bruyneel

  32. 32

    Ahhh the French! Anyone remember WWII?

  33. 33

    Re: TorontoPerezFan
    What does it have to do with Armstrong ? People think we forgot what the US did for us during WWII. It is not true. The French are thankful for that.
    But we had the right to make our own decision and not go to Irak, even if it meant to disagree with GW Bush, President of the universe ! French bashing was (or is …) a national sport in the US… Fortunately I know lots of american who don't think like you.

  34. 34

    He's sooo guilty, ya'll. Did anyone see him on Larry King forever ago lookin like a 2-year old lying about stealing the cupcake?

  35. 35

    Please America… KEEP HIM!!!! We actually enjoy the Tour de France when he's not in it.

  36. 36

    Typical attitude of the French.

  37. 37

    Now that's a SEXY man…

  38. 38

    So, from LA in California, you are saying that AFLD is managed by douche guys ????
    Wake up honey, Amstrong is a dope head like any participants of the "tour de France"… And, those things they take, one side effect is cancer of testicules…

    Whatever, who the fuck cares. His own hometown doesn't like him, they are sick of him. Mr. High and Mighty was exposed in the Austin paper as the city's biggest water consumer. That list included businesses. His home used more water than any business, including the city itself.
