Doping in cycling has been around forever, though the
1980s, ’90s, and 2000s arrange among a darkest years for the
sport.

A outrageous series of a riders in that duration doped, with Lance
Armstrong among a many deceit and sinister offenders.

Many others doped, though in further to holding lots bone-head and fibbing about it for
years, Armstrong was also a
vengeful chairman who personally
went after people he didn’t like, and,
by several accounts, he done their lives hell. That, in
short, done him opposite from a other dopers.

Alas, a foe is perplexing to
pierce on.

That’s because it’s rather differing to see Armstrong in a new
mockumentary from HBO scheduled for Jul 8. “Tour de Pharmacy”
is a “fictional, none-too-serious look” during doping and the
Tour
de France. (In box we missed it, Armstrong won 7 Tours
though had all those
titles stripped.)

The trailer, below, came out Friday, and Armstrong has a cameo in
it.

The film competence spin out to be funny, and maybe value watching,
though if you’re a bike-racing fan, it looks kind of
cringe-inducing, even as a mockumentary.

Absurd and sad, many like pro cycling in a 1980s, ’90s, and
2000s.

Here’s a press release:

of dignified depravity. Through a viewpoint of 5 riders, TOUR
