Things aren't going well for Lance Armstrong right now. He's been stripped of his Tour de France victories. He's been accused of using banned substances. His legacy is in doubt. And, if you can believe it, life just got even worse for him. Earlier today, his former U.S. Postal Service teammate George Hincapie admitted to doping during his cycling career in a statement.
"Because of my love for the sport, the contributions I feel I have made to it, and the amount the sport of cycling has given to me over the years, it is extremely difficult today to acknowledge that during a part of my career I used banned substances," he wrote. "Early in my professional career, it became clear to me that, given the widespread use of performance enhancing drugs by cyclists at the top of the profession, it was not possible to compete at the highest level without them. I deeply regret that choice and sincerely apologize to my family, teammates, and fans."
Hincapie also went on to say that he fully cooperated with the United States Anti-Doping Agency recently when they approached him about Armstrong's possible PED use. And, he also expressed some regret about having to tell them everything that he told them. Sooo…yeah. Take from that what you will.
All we know is that life sucks for Lance Armstrong right now. Can it get any worse? Stay tuned.
