Former cyclist Greg LeMond went on the air for an interview with CNN's Anderson Cooper Monday night and proceeded to say some damning things about former rival Lance Armstrong. Of course, damning evidence and testimony is nothing new for the maligned Armstrong, whose reputation has taken an unrecoverable hit since admitting to doping in January.  Nonetheless, LeMond's comments are certainly noteworthy. From USA TODAY: Cooper asked LeMond if Armstrong perpetrated the greatest fraud in sports history.LeMond replied, "Absolutely. Absolutely. The greatest fraud was that, I mean, I know his physical capabilities. He's a top 30 at best. I mean, at best. No matter what. If he was clean and everybody else was clean, he's a top 30 at best. He's not capable of winning the Tour. He's not capable of the top 5.""What do you think should happen to him now?" Cooper asked."This is not a sporting infraction," said LeMond, a three-time winner of the Tour de France. "This is criminal.""You think he should go to jail?" Cooper asked."I do, yeah," LeMond said. "This was an organized mafia and he literally tried to destroy people." Although Armstrong has avoided jail time up until this point, he has been stripped of his beloved Tour de France titles, all seven of them, and has lost the support (and money) of all his major sponsors, too.
