Lance Armstrong plans to admit to doping throughout his career during an upcoming interview with Oprah Winfrey, USA Today reported late Friday (1/11). The interview, scheduled to be taped Monday (1/14) and broadcast Thursday night (1/17) on the Oprah Winfrey Network, will be conducted at Armstrong’s home in Austin.
Citing an anonymous source, USA Today reported that the disgraced cyclist plans to admit to using performance-enhancing drugs but likely will not get into details of the allegations outlined in a 2012 report by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency that led to Armstrong being stripped of his seven Tour de France titles and banned for life from the sport.

His representatives declined comment late Friday, including attorney Tim Herman, but Armstrong sent a text to The Associated Press early Saturday morning saying: “I told her (Winfrey) to go wherever she wants and I’ll answer the questions directly, honestly, candidly. That’s all I can say.”
