Lance Armstrong is arguably one of the best athletes in history, but like so many others, that reputation could be tainted with news that he used performance-enhancing drugs.
In 2003, Lance was stopped by Swiss customs officials who searched his bag.
"Lance had a bag of drugs and shit," says disgraced rider Floyd Landis. "They wanted to search it, which was out of the ordinary."
According the Landis, Lance then asked a teammate to convince the agents that they were injectable vitamins. Landis said the agents "looked at us sideways, but let us through."
Mark Fabiani, a spokesman for Armstrong, says that these stories are no more true than they’ve ever been:
"The story is filled with old news, recycling the same old tired lies from the same old tired liars."
We like to think that Lance didn’t take any drugs, but it’s hard to tell. It’s likely that we’ll never know for sure!!
