Storyline

Discovery Channel Pro Cycling Team's Lance Armstrong has not won every Tour de France since 1999 simply because he puts in extra miles of training, watches what he eats or even because he's dodged major injuries over his long career. People have gone to great lengths to explain away Lance Armstrong's greatness as an athlete. Some look for explanations in his physiology. Some say his will is just stronger than most. Others say he's ruthlessly demanded no less than excellence from his teammates. The truth lies somewhere in a combination of these factors, and few aspects of his story are less than fascinating. He leaves his career at the top of his game, with an unprecedented six Tour de France wins under his bike. But what's truly amazing is he's done this after being issued a near death sentence. In 1998 he was diagnosed with stage 3 testicular cancer that had metastasized in his lungs and brain. True to form, he battled the disease like a champion, and like most other mountains that ...

Even more amazing
10 February 2016 | by See all my reviews

What's even more amazing is that the answer is none of the above. Lance's supernatural abilities simply came from the prodigious amounts of drugs he was willing to ingest in his quest for "greatness." The only other amazing things about Lance are 1) He is one the most accomplished liars of all time, facing down his critics and the athletic governing bodies in hot pursuit with a mountain of incredible lies told with an absolute straight face and appropriate amounts of indignation that anyone would insult his integrity; and 2) He bullied even his closest friends into taking similar drugs or quitting the team. He is truly one of the most reprehensible "athletes" of all time, and the fools who created documentaries expressing awe at his superb athleticism and will should be banned from filmmaking for the foreseeable future. So if you enjoy fairy tales, this is the documentary for you.
