On the 17th January 2013, in a cleverly orchestrated cathodic ceremony, the seven times winner of the Tour de France confesses to the queen of the talk-show, Oprah Winfrey, that he has been doped, using EPO, growth hormone and blood transfusions. But how did this American “hero” - stricken by cancer at the age of 25, returned to the height of competition through unfailing courage – build the greatest lie in the history of cycling, without anyone being able to stop him sooner?
