A terrific read on doping on the Tour de France.

Armstrong spent much of last year reiterating “I’m clean” at press conferences, and felt that journalists deliberately misconstrued him when he spoke French. He is a lean, prickly, single-minded character, whose stance before the microphone implies that tact is for girls; he is after victory, not popularity. This approach did little to wash away doubt.
