It seems that Lance Armstrong has ditched the contrite manner in which he previously admitted to doping throughout much of his illustrious cycling career.
Now he sounds downright defiant.
In an interview with ESPN the Magazine, Armstrong said that -- faced with widespread cheating in his sport -- he would do it all over again and that authorities singled him out because of his contentious nature.
"I knew what my competitors were doing," he was quoted as saying. "We [his U.S. Postal Service team] were doing less. We were more conservative, and that's the reason we were never going to be caught."
Following an investigation led by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency, officials stripped Armstrong of his seven Tour de France titles and banned him from competition for life.
