Paramount and Bad Robot studios bought the film rights for the biography ‘Cycle of Lies: The Fall of Lance Armstrong’ written by Juliet Macur, New York Times’ journalist.
Lance Armstrong admitted last week during an interview for Oprah Winfrey that he used doping substances during his career.
According to an article published yesterday by French newspaper Le Monde, the International Union of Cycling (IUC) covered Armstrong since 1999 as proved by the acceptation of a fake medical prescription.
Le Monde also published the control realized on July 4 of 1999 during a competition between the stages of Montaigu and Chaillans. This control shows a detection positive to corticoid while the cyclist filled “nothing” in the space for “used drugs”.
The IUC and its president Hein Verbruggen accepted, a posteriori, the medical prescription justifying the drug use in order to let Armstrong participate in the race.
