Lance Armstrong Returns To Cycling — As A Superfan Lance Armstrong still loves cycling, even though fewer fans still love him back. He was at the peak of his career when he confessed to doping in 2013 — something many friends and fans saw as a betrayal.

But he's spent the last few years making amends and making a new name for himself as a podcaster. We ask: where does he go from here?

Lance Armstrong still loves cycling, even though fewer fans still love him back.

He was at the peak of his career when he confessed to doping in 2013 — something many friends and fans saw as a betrayal. His victories were stripped (including all seven Tour de France titles), he was expelled from the Livestrong Foundation and he faced several lawsuits.

But he's spent the last few years making amends and making a new name for himself as a podcaster. "TheMove" is in the midst of its second season following every stage of the Tour de France.

Revelations aside, Armstrong knows his work is far from over:

"I've walked this path with people that were affected. I've traveled the world with people I was unkind to and sat across from them and spoken to them, apologized to them, asked for their forgiveness. Almost every single one of them has allowed me that. I've settled every lawsuit to the tune of $111 million. So if you're asking me if I feel like, any time in my day, I've still got work to do, I mean I know I have work to do on myself."

So where does he go from here?
