A big fat lie

A big fat lie


So sad 😦

To think I would jump up and down, raising my fist high up in the air, shouting “YES! YES! GO! GO!” in front of the TV when I saw him make a breakaway in the Alps.

How I would scoff at Ullrich’s and Pantani’s technique because they were nowhere near his.

How my friends and I would emulate the low gear-fast cadence which we saw was what he was doing right and making him win.

How we bought “Livestrong” bands because we believed in him and in what he achieved as an athlete and a human being.

An inspiration, hero, idol….. all of it was a big fat lie 😦
