Since cyclist Floyd Landis admitted to performance-enhancing drug use, he has come forward to say that he saw his competitors engage in the same behavior.
"Rather than go into the entire detail of every single time I've seen it, yes," said Landis. "I saw Lance Armstrong using drugs."
Wowsa! He also claims that Lance used those same drugs throughout his career AND transfused his own blood, which gives athletes more endurance by increasing their red blood count.
"Landis is a confessed perjurer and he is a liar, and I think, as Lance said … when you taste milk to see if it's sour, you take a first taste and you don't have to drink the whole carton to know it's all sour," said Armstrong's attorney, Tim Herman.
"I don't feel guilty at all about having doped. I did what I did because that's what we [cyclists] did and it was a choice I had to make after 10 years or 12 years of hard work to get there, and that was a decision I had to make to make the next step. My choices were, do it and see if I can win, or don't do it and I tell people I just don't want to do that, and I decided to do it.
When asked if he thought Armstrong was a fraud, he added:
"Well, it depends on what your definition of fraud is. I mean it, look, if he didn't win the Tour, someone else that was doped would have won the Tour. In every single one of those Tours."
It sounds like no one even had a fighting chance.
