Watching now from recording it last night. Despite knowing what was going to be said, it's almost upsetting to hear him say it.

I know what you mean Ive just watched the clips and I did found it upsetting it was like listening to somebody you trusted and looked up to saying they'd been lying to you for years :(

What I find most disappointing is that for those of us in the cycling community that have been touched by cancer Armstrong by his own actions placed himself upon a pedestal, I wouldn't hesitate to punch the f***** off of it right now :x

I fall into that category, if it came out now that Armstrong's cancer claim was another pack of lies that would be the final nail in the coffin for me :(

I'm another one, that he had cancer is the one bit that is true...

Apologies, but I don't understand why him admitting it has hit you hard. It was obvious throughout his career, and with all the evidence in the past 6 months, surely you were prepared for it? I didn't see it, but from what I've read, it was a half arsed attempt at getting his name back in the papers. Apologies weren't enough, and he didn't name names.

Please form an orderly queue. And remember, ladies first; specifically, Nicole Cooke if this morning's BBC Breakfast interview is anything to go by.
