Story | Jan 24, 2013 | 9:36 AMAs a longtime fan of bicycle racing — I was on the finish line in Paris in 1986 when Greg LeMond became the first American to win the Tour de France — I followed Lance Armstrong's career with intense excitement as he took cycling from the wings to center stage in his country's sport consciousness. That said, it became clear that while his story of cancer survival was compelling and inspiring, Mr. Armstrong was not a pleasant person. He was selfish and self-centered. But so are many athletes. Getting yourself to that stage of physical perfection is a selfish endeavor.
