Lance never made me write a single paragraph in “It’s Not About the Bike” or the sequel “Every Second Counts,” and the vast majority of them, I stand by as honest. Such as this one: “Cycling is so hard, the suffering is so intense, that it’s absolutely cleansing.”
An absolutely astonishing exoneration of Lance Armstrong by his co-author. Apparently, if you suffer enough when you’re on your bike, that magically “cleanses” you of any illegal drugs in your system. Convenient, that.
