Patch Poll: Should Iowa Welcome Lance Armstrong on RAGBRAI?
Cycling legend Lance Armstrong finally admitted that he used performance enhancers to help win his seven Tour de France titles.
Olympic medalist and Tour de France champion Lance Armstrong recently confessed to doping to win bicycling titles, which you can watch on ESPN.
The cyclist has been stripped of his seven Tour De France titles, and he was also asked to return his bronze Olympic cycling medal, according to a report in USA Today.
Rumors that Armstrong had used performance enhancers have surfaced from time-to-time, but Armstrong had adamantly denied those rumors and was ruthless towards his accusers.
Some say his recent admission is part of a plan to come back.
Iowans have their own unique connection with Armstrong. The Cyclist brought his charity Livestrong to Iowa's own famous summer bicycle event - RAGBRAI, starting back in 2006.
Many Iowans felt honored to have the famous cyclist on RAGBRAI, and even relished the opportunity to ride along side the champ.
But, what do you think, is Armstrong's act forgivable? Would you welcome him on RAGBRAI?
And which is worse that he used performance enhancers to win or took so long to tell the truth? Tell us in the comments.
