Lance Armstrong says if he could go back, he would probably dope again


Lance Armstrong claims he would never dope today. But if he had to go back in time, the 43-year-old cyclist who was stripped of his seven Tour de France titles would probably do it all over again. 

In an interview with BBC Sport to promote the documentary, Lance Armstrong: The Road Ahead, Armstrong explains that attitudes were different in the '90s – thus his decision to use performance-enhancing drugs. 

"If I was racing in 2015, I wouldn't do it again," he told BBC Sport. "Take me back to 1995 when it was completely and totally pervasive, I'd probably do it again. People don't like to hear that. That’s the honest answer."
