My take on Lance Armstrong in Wired Magazine

Blog // Doping

A couple of weeks ago, I talked about a new, radical article on Lance Armstrong. That article never made it to print, at least not yet. A number of news outlets looked at it, many editors said they loved it, but just couldn’t run it. So, instead, I wrote another one and sent it to Wired who immediately accepted it. Here it is. The sentiment is similar to draft one, but the tone, method and overall style is very different. The other one may be published elsewhere, one day. Until then, only a select few who asked for it have read it.

My secret article on Lance Armstrong

Blog // Doping

I’ve been tweeting recently that I have written a radical new piece about Lance Armstrong. A few people are still helping me find the right home for it, but here’s an opportunity to read it before it’s published.

If you’d like to receive it, then please do the following.

1. Use your Twitter account to tweet ‘I’m about to read @andymiah on #LanceArmstrong’

2. Email me at email@andymiah.net with ‘Lance Armstrong’ in the subject header.

3. Once you’ve read it, please don’t share the contents. If you like it, or hate it, then you are certainly encouraged to say so publicly, but I don’t want to kill the publication by its contents being shared before it’s out, so I’d be grateful if you kept the secret.

I really hope you enjoy the piece.

Best wishes,


PS. the wristband broke in 2005. It was clearly trying to tell me something :)
