When Armstrong set that precedent of winning seven Tours, this incredible achievement by an unbelievable athlete, it set him apart in cycling. But the reality is his success was built on lies. I look at him now and think to myself: “He didn’t win those Tours fairly, so maybe this superhuman legend was never as good a bike rider as me.”
That makes me feel proud that my victories aren’t built on sand; no one will ever take that away from me. I have won the Tour de France.
Sir Bradley Wiggins
