Lance Armstrong Is Still My Hero [AUDIO]

Today on The Sean and Richie Show, Sean told us about Lance Armstrong being stripped of his 7 Tour De France titles. I don’t know if he cheated or not, if I had to guess I would say he did something but they still haven’t proven it. The beauty is EVERYONE was cheating. So I ask if EVERYONE is cheating is ANYONE really cheating?

I believe that cheating is wrong. I have never and will never respect cheaters. That being said I remember the pride I felt as Lance was dominating the cycling world for USA. However if they are stripping his titles for cheating who gets them? The runner up from each race? Sorry! Wrong they are all cheaters and have actually been caught.

In 1999, Lance beat a guy named Alex Zulle.  Who confessed to using a performance-enhancing drug called EPO.

In 2000, 2001, and 2003, Lance beat Jan Ullrich.  He was suspended in 2006 and has been stripped of ALL his cycling wins since 2005.

In 2002, Lance beat Joseba Beloki, who was suspended in 2006 while they investigated him for doping.

In 2004, Andreas Kloden finished second.  He was accused of getting an illegal blood transfusion.

In 2005, Ivan Basso finished second.  He’s confessed to doping and is suspended.

Listen to the show decide who the winner of the Tour De France is now.
