Lance Armstrong will reportedly admit doping in interview with Oprah

We’re sure you know by now that Lance Armstrong was planning to do an interview with Oprah that would air on January 17. But what’s unclear is how Armstrong is planning to use his time with Oprah.

Former Tour cyclist Matt DeCanio believes will use the time to cry and “manipulate people’s opinions” as a final attempt to “gather public support.” Likewise, British cyclist David Millar believes that the interview will be “staged” saying. ““I doubt very much it will be a proper interrogation.”

Both of those assertions have a really chance of happening, but according to USA Today, an admission of doping from Lance Armstrong will also happen in his time with Oprah.

Lance Armstrong plans to make an admission about doping in an interview with Oprah Winfrey scheduled to tape Monday at his home in Austin, Texas, a person with knowledge of the situation said.

In the interview, which is scheduled to air Thursday on the Oprah Winfrey Network, the famed cyclist plans to admit to doping throughout his career but probably will not get into great detail about specific cases and events, the person said. The person spoke to USA TODAY Sports on the condition of anonymity because the person was not authorized to speak publicly about it.

This is certainly a far cry from Armstrong originally calling the USADA’s case a “charade”. A statement that later was scrubbed from his website.

  1. Where did it get Pete Rose? Screw it the ones who won years ago might have doped too. I heard Eddie Merck did and what about Greg Lemond? If someone wins three years in a tow what are the odds?
