This video is a trailer of “The Armstrong Lie” movie. Alex Gibney, the film maker, documents Armstrong’s rise to glory and subsequently, his fall from grace. The Armstrong Lie movie covers interviews with former friends, former teammates and journalists.

There are insightful interviews with George Hincapie, Frankie and Betsy Andreu; however, some key players are only briefly mentioned such as Floyd Landis and Tyler Hamilton.

The Armstrong lie covers the dark side of Lance Armstrong and how prominent drugs were in the peloton.

    They… all the big name riders were doping.. level playing fields …hell yes.
    The fact as Tyler put it in his book that he was two years ahead of everyone else.. boo freaking hoo…..
    Now… if it had been the fact that he was the ONLY one doing it that would be different…. but that is NOT the case…. as we all know. Did he lie…yes… for way to long… but in the end Armstrong in the opinion of many, my self included, goes down as one of the greatest cyclists of all time. period end of story. So he was ruthless…..most really successful professional athletes are.

    The movie I want to see that’s coming out in April 2014 is the documentary about Maco Pantani. That in my opinion would be a more interesting one to see.

    He has such a talent but the glimmer of winning, money, and power consumed him. I idolized his talent but certainly not the man. Greed is evil and I loathe it in anyone. I wish him well and I hope he finds his peace. He ceratinly owes compensation to the lives he ruined and should repent by restoring the money lost by those individuals. Namely, Greg LeMond, Floyd Landis, Frankie Andreu and others.

    Leave him alone? Are you kidding? He brought ALL this media on himself by being an ingenuine role model, athlete, and cancer survivor. In doing this, he paved the way to be a successful politician. Strip him of medals, honor, and courage. He has to live this lie the rest of his Life. At least he didnt say cycling was like going to war in afghanistan.

    Hi Kate. I used to sail Lasers in the 70′s and 80′s and I fully agree on the power requirements to race a Finn. Very strabge that the doping agency refused it. Wonder what they would have done if a guy arrived with a running blade as a leg ???

    Such a shame that the press can’t forgive and forget. He was not the only one using enhancements but he should have come clean sooner and not ruined so many peoples lifes around him…

    A UCI NADA FEZ NOS ANOS QUE ELE GANHOU OS TOURS .NADA FOI DETECTADO NO COMTROLE ANTI-DOPING.AGORA DEIXEM O CAMPEAO EM PAZ.

  10. I’ve been a fan of Lance; the story, the effort, but I’ve believed all along that he must be doping. Why? Due to the testicular cancer and removal of his testes his body produces little or no Testosterone (T), without T it’s pretty much impossible to build the muscle you need to do what he did.

    I know of a case in another sport; Olympic Finn sailboats, where a sailor also had testicular cancer. Finn racing on the Olympic level takes an incredible amount of strength and endurance and the sailor was upfront with the Olympic doping committee; he needed to take T to stay competitive. As I understand it he offered to keep his T within the normal levels and be tested at reasonable intervals. The doping committee rejected the offer and he never raced in the Olympics. Perhaps Lance was aware of the case.

    Obviously I have no proof that Lance doped, but I’ve been waiting for the other shoe to drop since 1999.

    BTW, I was at a celebration of lance’s first victory in Austin where our then governor George W. Bush introduced Lance and, jokingly I assume, offered him the Vice Presidency on his ticket. Would have been better for all if he had accepted – no doping tests for politicians.

    Perhaps I’m wrong about the need for T, I’m not a doctor. If you know otherwise please say so, it will change my view of Lance.

    I think it says alot that they can’t even name a runner up to all the titles that Lance won because they were al found to be taking PED’s. So is Lance really a bad man for being caught taking what eveyone else was taking, I think it par for the course. He is still an amazing cyclist in my view and a great humanitarian for his work with the Livestrong foundation.

    What separates Lance from the rest of the cheaters is the wake of destruction he left behind, win at all cost.

  13. As a cyclist for over 40 years (although not a racer), and one who admired Lance and saw him in stages of the Tour from 2001-2005, I was awed by his focus and dedication. However, his treatment of many of his former friends, and those he feared could verify evidence of his doping, was unforgivable.

    Life to him, and many in positions of power today, is a zero-sum game: “It’s not enough that I should win; everyone else (including my friends) must also lose”. That’s not a philosophy to live by.

    I hope he can somehow redeem himself, live in peace, and continue to contribute to his Live Strong foundation, which has done so much good.

    He competed on a level playing field. That’s the bottom line.

      No he didn’t… read Tyler’s book, he was always at least two years ahead of everybody else with doping methods!!

        In every walk of life – someone is always ahead of everyone else; they call it progress. Just because the others weren’t as “clever” at doping as Armstrong, doesn’t make them any less guilty. They’re all grown men – and incidentally continued to dope after leaving Armstrong’s team – even though they only did it because Lance made them.
        Doped or not – finishing the tour, never mind winning it 7 times is an incredible athletic achievement. Don’t be fooled into thinking that doping would allow an average athlete with little training to compete in the tour.
        Yes he was probably not a very nice man when competing – but how many “winners” are?

  15. ARMSTRONG ES EL MEJOR CICLISTA DEL SIGLO, LA CAMPAÑA DE LINCHAMIENTO SOBRE EL, ES POR PERSONAJES QUE SOBRE LA BICICLETA EN LOS EVENTOS MAS IMPORTANTES DEL CALENDARIO DE LA U.C.I, NO LOGRARON VENCERLO, PARA VENCERLO SE NECESITABA QUE TANTO PERIODISTAS CHA says : Reply

  16. …Armstrong has been one of the best cyclists of the world;..most of them ran doped,….anyway was the best,…¿is the UCI innocent???….

    Leave the guy alone—- he has suffered enough as the high profile figure of the UCI-who where happy enough at the time to deny the issues under their mandate. Cycling has always had a poor image in this respect until recently. it’s pathetic that this august authority will not recognise it’s own failings during this period.

  18. not that Armstrong deserves sympathy, all those who were enjoying the riches of being part of Armstrong’s winning and are now throwing down a man they said was the greatest are slimy. Hincapie became a millionaire riding with Armstrong and took the first opportunity to roll the bus over him.

    Hincapie, Landis and Hamilton are all as guilty as the people who played with and ignored Bonds, Rodriquez, Palmero and any other athlete who took PED’s. Problem is that those first three are attempting to capitalize monetarily on this.

    I won’t be viewing this movie.

    I agree with you. His reign changed cycling in the U.S.A., if you don.t believe me ask the bike manufacturers. Cycling was at an all time high. Lance will always be idolized
    by me. I sure enjoyed watching the tour all of those years. Somehow the tour is not quite as exciting.
