With the new Lance Armstrong documentary airing as part of ESPN's '30 For 30' series, we wanted to dig up some podcasts on the disgraced former cyclist that aired on Off The Ball.
Listen to our interviews with the people closest to the story of Lance on the OTB Podcast Network.
Emma O'Reilly is one of the most important voices we've spoken to around the story of Lance Armstrong. The Dubliner was a soigneur in Armstrong's infamous US Postal team, and one of the key whistleblowers. She released a book in 2014 about lifting the lid on his doping, and joined Ger in the studio:
Betsy Andreu was one of the key players in exposing Lance Armstrong's doping. Alongside her husband Frankie Andreu, who was a teammate of Armstrong's and also used performance-enhancing drugs, their testimony was key to the investigation into doping in cycling:
Ger and Joe caught up with David Walsh in December 2016 to discuss the scandal engulfing Team Sky at the time - and the differences that lay between their demise, and that of Lance Armstrong.
Walsh is Chief Sportswriter at the Sunday Times, and his reporting played a key role in Armstrong's downfall:
In May 2018, Tyler Hamilton joined Ger Gilroy and Eoin Sheahan to talk about the decision to dope, his relationship with Lance Armstrong and the potential of motor doping plus much, much more:
In an interview on OTB AM within the last couple of weeks, Hamilton said that teammates had to be careful how they spoke around Lance.
"You had to kind of tread lightly around Lance when you were teammates with him, you know? Because when you were on his good side things were pretty good, but when you were on his bad side it could get ugly quickly. I certainly feared that, yeah."
Next up for us is Floyd Landis - the former cyclist and doper will appear on OTB AM on Wednesday morning.
