Watch The Armstrong Lie Online

Byron Kidd
The story of professional cyclist Lance Armstrong's fall from grace played out in the media over what felt like years. If you're anything like me you decided quite early on that Lance was a lying cheating stain on the sport yet didn't feel any need to follow every detail the media circus bought to light.

But now the dust has settled and the truth has been sorted from the rum you can view all those months and years of agonising detail in just 124 minutes thanks to a new documentary by Alex Gibney entitled "The Armstrong Lie".

Gibney originally planned a documentary showing Lances extraordinary comeback to the sport after defeating cancer in 2009, but when Lance's lies were revealed Gibney decided to combine the footage he already had with interviews with the people that eventually bought Armstrong down.

Ultimately if you followed Lance's story in detail in the media you won't learn anything new from the interviews this movie, but if you're like me and hid under a rock you'll discover that "The Armstrong Lie" condenses all the facts into a quick an easily digestible format so that by the end you know the full story and didn't waste months getting it as it played out live.

Whether you have strong opinions on Lance Armstrong or not, he was such an influential figure in professional cycling, whose downfall shed light on the darker corners of the sport, and bought the UCI into disrepute that you really shroud see this movie. It will change the way you look at the sport of cycling.

The Armstrong Lie

In 2009, Academy Award®-winning director Alex Gibney (2007, Best Documentary, Taxi to the Dark Side) was hired to make a film about Lance Armstrong’s comeback to cycling. The project was shelved when the doping scandal erupted, and re-opened after Armstrong’s confession. THE ARMSTRONG LIE picks up in 2013 after Armstrong was stripped of his 7 Tour de France titles, and presents a riveting, insider’s view of the unraveling of the greatest deception in sports history.

If you're in the United States you can rent and view The Armstrong Lie in the Embedded video player above for just $3.99. The Armstrong Lie DVD is also available from Amazon.

  1. Great film, thanks for sharing. Awesome that I could watch on your site through my chromecast!

  2. funny thing is I don't hear people apologizing to Greg Lemond ( now again, the greatest American cyclist ) for wrongfully criticizing him, that he rightfully criticized Lance.
