Bradley Wiggins says he feels no sympathy for Lance Armstrong after he confessed to doping - and stated he does not believe the American raced clean upon his ill-fated comeback.
Wiggins finished fourth in the 2009 Tour, one place behind Armstrong who prevented him from achieving what would have been the first podium finish by a Briton in the race.
Having put 29 seconds into the American on stage 15 into Verbier at the end of the second week, he lost 22 seconds to Armstrong six days later on Mont Ventoux. His difference in strength between the two racing days, said Wiggins, is why he believes the Texan is lying when he claims he didn't dope during his comeback.
"That was the thing that upset me the most about 2009 and 2010. I thought you lying bastard. I can still remember going toe-to-toe with him, watching him and his body language. The man I saw at the top of Verbier in 2009 to the man I saw on the top of Ventoux two weeks later, it wasn't the same bike rider. Watch the videos and see the way the guy was riding. I just don't believe anything that comes out of his mouth anymore," said Wiggins.
