Lance Armstrong: “I Wouldn’t Change Decision to Cheat”

Armstrong, 43, was stripped of his record seven Tour de France titles and banned from sport for life by the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) in August 2012.

“If I was racing in 2015, no, I wouldn’t do it again because I don’t think you have to,” he said.

“If you take me back to 1995, when doping was completely pervasive, I would probably do it again.”

Speaking in his first television interview since confessing to Oprah Winfrey that he had used performance-enhancing drugs during his career, Armstrong tells BBC sports editor Dan Roan:

•The “fallout” since his confession has been “heavy” and he now lives his life at 10mph, not 100.
•His decision to dope was “bad”, but taken at “an imperfect time”.
•He still feels like he won the seven Tour titles he was stripped of.
•He raced clean during his second comeback in 2009 and 2010.
