I'm a bit excited about this to be honest with you. I'm not even remotely a cycling fan, but all this controversy made it a bit difficult to simply ignore. I'm curious to see how he does when those questions come at him full force. I'd like to see him address the snitches too.
"After more than a decade of denying that he doped to win the Tour de France seven times, Armstrong was set to sit down Monday for what has been trumpeted as a ''no-holds barred,'' 90-minute, question-and-answer session with Winfrey.
The cyclist will make a limited confession about his role as the head of a long-running scheme to dominate the prestigious bike race with the aid of performance-enhancing drugs, a person with knowledge of the situation has told The Associated Press.
Winfrey and her crew said they would film the interview at Armstrong's home and broadcast it Thursday on the Oprah Winfrey Network. Local and international news crews were staking out positions in front of Armstrong's Spanish-style villa. News crews began arriving before dawn, hoping to catch a glimpse of Winfrey or Armstrong.
If he was feeling any pressure, Armstrong hardly showed it during a jog under bright skies Sunday, even as members of his legal team began arriving one-by-one at his home.
''I'm calm, I'm at ease and ready to speak candidly,'' he told the AP, but declined to reveal how he would answer questions about the scandal that has shadowed his career like an angry storm cloud."
