- Bradley Cooper to play Lance Armstrong in a film.
He still won 7 TdF though on what seems to have been a level playing field for most of the top 10 in those races. It could be a good film, given the impact he has had world wide and you cannot deny he is a complex character. A good script writer could make something of it, though perhaps its all a bit to recent for many people.Posted 4 years agoMSPSubscriber

Sorry MSP. I should have said, won 7 TdFs with more than the top 10 taking something that they should not have been, don’t mean I agree with it. You can take his name from the winners lists but there was no one else in front of him. Sounds as close to a level playing field as you could get at the time. Lance did well considering he did not have a univercity dept looking after his doping, unlike Ulrich and his team. Perhaps we should get rid of the results of all those who worked with Lances coach. 🙂Posted 4 years ago
Your right of course educkator for 99, have they retro tested 2000 to see how many were loaded once it was realised that LA did not care what happened in 98? How many of the top 10 in each of the race he won were busted for dopping? Almost all of the them, a couple of notable exceptions.
Still thing given a good bit of writting it could be a good film, especially if they looked at from a David Walsh point of view. He is on the CYCle show now.Posted 4 years ago
It’s a good subject matter for a film looking at it from many level. It is to soon though. It could be a very interesting documentary once all the main players are old men. I find the whole thing very interesting, especially the polarisation of those of us who are just spectators to the whole thing.Posted 4 years ago
I think the real story is the upstanding moral kid being corrupted by a nasty sport and forced to compromise his integrity to win the race for the US against the evil cheese eating surrender monkey French and then his struggle to come to terms with the price he paid for his victories.
That price being a $500m retirement fund rather poorly disguised as a cancer awareness charity.
