Fact? There's no objective, physical evidence and you call it fact? No, it's not fact.

No, that doesn't cover the sheer scale of what the USADA is alleging that Armstrong did. As I said, they are asking people to believe that only did Armstrong beat metastasised cancer, come back to cycling and win 7 Tour de France titles, but that he did it while being doped up to the eyeballs (while beating all the testers), and was also the ring leader in pushing drugs onto other cyclists (again undetected).

The USADA's scenario of what happened has left reality way behind and entered the realm of fiction.
