Armstrong Ap-Hollow-Gizes, but …

Lance Armstrong apologized to the staff at his Livestrong cancer foundation — but did not make a direct confession to using banned drugs — before heading to his scheduled interview with Oprah Winfrey on Monday, a person with direct knowledge of the meeting told Associated Press. The source said the disgraced cyclist said “I'm sorry” for letting the organization down and putting it at risk, adding that he intended to restore the foundation's reputation and urged the employees to move forward in helping cancer patients and their families. Armstrong reportedly choked up during the meeting and several staff members cried. Still, the rider who was stripped of his seven Tour de France titles stopped short of confessing to the use of performance enhancing drugs/Chuck Schilken, Los Angeles Times. More here.

Question: Do you care a thing about bike racing since Armstrong, who has visited Coeur d'Alene, left the scene?
