Armstrong: Truth & reconciliation is 'only way'

LONDON (AP) - Lance Armstrong says a truth and reconciliation program is the "only way" to deal with cycling's doping crisis and the sport's governing body should have no role in the process.

Armstrong spoke to Cyclingnews in his first interview since admitting to Oprah Winfrey that he doped to win the Tour de France seven times.

Armstrong says the best way forward for cycling is a truth and reconciliation process offering amnesty to riders and officials who come forward about the extent of performance-enhancing drug use in the sport.

He says "it's not the best way, it's the only way" and the issue is more than about him.

Armstrong says in the email interview that "publicly lynching one man and his team will not solve this problem."
