Lance Armstong, Still Not Concerned (UPDATE)

Sports Illustrated is going after Lance Armstrong. The cyclist doesn’t sound worried.

“I’ve perused it. There’s nothing there,” he told AFP when asked about the report that links him to EPO use.

According to the story, Armstrong got a bit testy when pestered further.

“Dude, are you that stupid? Which part of ‘I’m not commenting’ is not clear to you?” he said.

This can be taken one of two ways.Either interpret the outburst as the cyclist angry because he’s about to get found out or take it that he’s mad because the reporter kept after the same line of questioning. Right now, give him the benefit of the doubt. Reporters can get annoying, and he’s within his right to get upset. But Armstrong is walking (biking?) on increasingly thin ice. The longer he denies, the worse it’s going to be if/when it’s revealed he did dope.

Regardless, there’s going to be a lot more to this story before we’re all done.

UPDATE: Here’s the full SI story. Armstrong probably should be concerned.
