Five years after Lance Armstrong confessed publicly on the Oprah Winfrey Show to doping, the disgraced Texan rider says it cost him over a $100 million. After his confession, long term sponsors such as Oakley, Trek and many others dropped their huge endorsements and sponsorship which drastically reduced his income.
For the past decade and half, Armstrong vehemently denied any wrongdoing. He denied the allegations of anti-doping violations and even attacked his critics. Then on the interview he admitted to the use of EPO, Human Growth Hormone, Testosterone, Cortisone and even blood doping. He suggested that it would have been impossible to win the Tour de France clean.
