The Armstrong Lie trailer: liar liar pants on fire

It’s always astonishing to me how people think they’re not gonna caught in their enormous lies. Maybe some of them don’t get caught. But enough of them do that you’d think that public shame and embarrassment would be a deterrent.

I’ve seen this at London Film Festival. Review soon… as soon as I can get my brain back in gear. But you already know it’s great cuz it’s from Alex Gibney.

    Particularly weird in this case because I don’t believe there has been a single cyclist competitive at the TdF level, certainly in the last 10-15 years, who wasn’t doping. And I’m not alone in that belief; ask anyone who’s been involved with the “sport” (when they’re not on camera, because there’s a lot of money tied up in making it look like honest competition). Human physiology tops out unless you give it assistance, and so that’s been done.
