Dan Coyle explaining to Anderson Cooper the Biological Passport. Coyle is a very, very smart man, and also very humble.
Toobin said that Armstrong will be compelled to testify under oath in the future. This is correct. Assuming that Lance was telling the truth in the Oprah interview and that he was planning to tell the truth when under oath in the future, I do not think that the interview was a huge mistake from a legal perspective. Now, if he changes his story again in the future that is a different story.
Betsy, could Lance ever regain your trust? "Who knows? He's going through this range of emotions. On the phone he seemed sincere. Then on TV, stuff comes out of his mouth. He's cherry picking what the truth is. He just doesn't get it... I know it's a process. I know it's baby steps. But I think it's not going very well."
Cooper, talking about Armstrong's "Just layin' around" tweet: "That wasn't that long ago!"
Coyle: "There's something childlike about Lance. He sees something, and he wants to get it. It's like he's stuck at a certain age."
Statement from USADA CEO Travis Tygart, regarding Armstrong's 2004 offer of a $250,000 "donation" to USADA: "“We stand by the facts both in the Reasoned Decision and in the 60 Minutes interview."
Word is that Armstrong was NOT paid, at all, for his appearance on Oprah's show
Getting close to shutting down for the evening
Quick plug: Thanks again to Art's Cyclery for supporting our live coverage. We appreciate it.
Coyle says Armstrong's comeback will be "somewhere along the spectrum of Pete Rose and Bill Clinton"
And on that note... thanks everyone for stopping by. It's been a massive, and surreal, week in the cycling community. I'm going to follow Matt D's advice and go ride my bike tomorrow. Hope you all do as well. Until next time...
