Armstrong's Enemies Find Vindication, Sadness 1/20/13
January 20, 2013
AUSTIN - First shunned, then vilified by Lance Armstrong, Mike
Anderson had to move to the other side of the world to get his life back.
Now running a bike shop in New Zealand, Armstrong's former assistant says if
he doesn't care if he never hears his ex-boss' voice again.
Anderson is among the many former teammates, opponents and associates to
receive the Armstrong treatment, presumably for not going with the party line -
that the now-disgraced, seven-time Tour de France cyclist didn't need to cheat
Now that the longtime Austin resident has admitted that he's a doper, many
of those who saw their lives changed are going through a gamut of emotions.
Some feel vindicated, others remain vengeful. Some are sad, while others,
like Anderson, say they are simply done with Armstrong.
