Lance Armstrong on Oprah Jan. 17 on OWN and Oprah.com – The whole mess surrounding Lance Armstrong has finally reached it’s cracking point many think as it’s being reported that the ex-cycling legend may have at very least given a partial admission to Oprah in an interview that is to be aired on Jan 17th!

Let’s be frank, this Lance Armstrong business has been turned into quite a circus and the world waits with baited breath for what this disgraced cyclist has to say. I admit that when the news first broke about the doping scandal I thought it was just people out to get him and Armstrong repeatedly fought them. As time went on and evidence mounted I swayed to the mainstream view and with everything as it is now an admission seems near inevitable.
The 41 year old who famously battled testicular cancer and won seven Tour de France titles in his career has had every title stripped and had a life long ban from the sport imposed on him by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency. He was banned for benefitting from year of systematic doping and using banned substances plus receiving illicit blood transfusions.
After all the denials the world around him seems to have crumbled and with no options left he had headed to Oprah. Some say he will bring down everyone around him with more lies, some believe it will be heartfelt. Personally I am trying not to speculate as to exactly what tone he will be taking.
So when and where can it be seen?

The 90-minute interview was taped at Armstrong’s home in Austin Texas and is to be screened at 9pm of Oprah’s OWN network on the program ”Oprah’s Next Chapter”. It will also be live streamed to Oprah.com so most people should be able to watch it.
Will you be watching? Are you hoping for a full admission or do you think you will be disappointed?
I think we have all known for some time that drugs are a huge part of cycling a large part of me hopes this starts to dismantle it all. So what if we see slower times in the Tour de France? At least we’ll know the athletes are clean.
What do you think?
