Armstrong Aide Talks of Doping and Price Paid
NY Times ^ | 10/12/12 | MARY PILON

Posted on 10/13/2012 4:43:34 PM PDT by Vision

Ms. O’Reilly said Mr. Armstrong demonized her as a prostitute with a drinking problem, and had her hauled into court in England. Ultimately, a legal settlement was reached, and Ms. O’Reilly tried to pick up her life, sometimes talking about Mr. Armstrong and drugs, but to little notice.

Ms. O’Reilly said she was once in a room giving Mr. Armstrong a massage when he and officials on the team fabricated a story to conceal a positive drug test result. Ms. O’Reilly said Mr. Armstrong told her, “You know enough to bring me down.”

But, this isn't as bad as when Armstrong destroyed his assistant from Austin who felt he needed to leave the US and now resides in New Zealand.

The NYT is guilty of doping the news they publish.

I read somewhere that he’d passed every official test, for many years. Now, I’ve recently read that the USADA has all kinds of negative drug test results, witness testimony etc, for evidence. I honestly don’t know what to believe, but I’m getting very skeptical of LA altogether.

He's a really nasty guy. I can recommend a great book if you're interested.

One of Armstong’s tactics is to be outrageous with lies. And that he never failed one is his biggest lie.

Yes, I’d be interested in reading it. I need to get a factual grip on this whole thing.

I was a strong Lance supporter for as long as I could find something to hold on to and a reason to believe him. The evidence to the contrary has moved me.

According to the Democrats Romney is a Liar, thief, and Murderer! Do I believe that? No!!! Lance Armstrong had to take a blood test before each Race and after. If he had been doping they would have caught him and Kicked him from the tours. This BS came out after that other American got caught doping then he said after he was caught Lance did it too.
Thus the investigation! Now they catch him 5 years after the fact this is really fishy!!!

Isn't blood doping oxygenating one’s own blood then transfusing back into the body?

If that's it, any evidence it actually works?

Is that what LA is accused of?
Or is it more?

You mean the guy who was a bike tech for Armstrong's team for a little under two years who got pissed off at Armstrong because he didn't buy a bike shop for him?

At least get your story straight......

Wouldn't that have been documented by the UIC and resulted in at least a suspension? Please, show us proof......and not the crap from the witch hunters.

Baynative, have you read the secret race yet?

I'm chomping at the bit to talk to someone about it. You were thinking about it right?

You're not familiar with the culture of cycling in the last 30 years.

After reading the chilling and damming reviews, I’m going to order that book; thanks.

"Merckx has condemned doping but he tested positive three times.[4]

The first time was in the 1969 Giro d'Italia[6] where he tested positive for the stimulant Reactivan at Savona, after leading the race through 16 stages. He was expelled from the Giro. The controversy began to swirl when his test results were not handled in the correct manner; they were released to the press before all parties involved (Merckx and team officials) were notified.[49]

Merckx was very upset, and to this day, protests his innocence.[6] He argued there were no counter-experts nor counter-analysis. He said the stage during which he was allegedly using drugs was easy so there was no need. "

******

" "If you ain't cheatin', you ain't tryin'" is an old NASCAR expression. Junior Johnson had this to say about his creativity when it came to building cars:

"I loved the game. Maybe I'd have four of five new things on a car that might raise a question. But I'd always leave something that was outside of the regulations in a place where the inspectors could easily find it.

"They'd tell me it was illegal, I'd plead guilty, and they'd carry it away thinking they caught me. But they didn't check some other things that I thought were even more special." "

**********************

No news here.

Reallly... it's time to move-on.
