Lance Armstrong Brags About Passing VP Mike Pence on Bike, Gets Slammed for Doping Past

Share

Lance Armstrong’s brief Twitter exultation at surpassing Vice President Mike Pence while the two were riding bicycles in Nantucket, Massachusetts, on Saturday was soon buried in scorn as critics ripped Armstrong for his past.

Armstrong was stripped of his seven Tour de France titles after a doping scandal.

“I can’t drop many people on a bike these days but I just blew the f***in’ doors off Mike Pence on a Nantucket bike path. Day. Made,” he tweeted.

Pence had flown into Nantucket Saturday for a Republican fundraiser, The Boston Globe reported.

Alyssa Farah, a spokeswoman for the vice president, issued a tweet in reply from her personal account. “Couldn’t quite hang onto those Tour de France titles, but hey, at least you beat Karen & Mike Pence on a leisurely bike ride! Congrats?”

Armstrong’s boast also caught the attention of Donald Trump Jr.

“Wow dude you’re a real bad ass … did you need to use steroids this time too or was that just to cheat others out of wins throughout your career?” the president’s son tweeted.

Others on Twitter joined in.

Armstrong later suggested it was his critics who were off base.

“Some people can’t take a joke or even having a little fun on twitter. Lightin’ the f— up people. But seriously, I did blow his doors off!!” he tweeted.
