Cycling’s superstar lied for years about doping, and now some unsatisfied folks who purchased his books want their money back. Two readers are spearheading a class action lawsuit against Armstrong. The suit, filed in federal court in California, said the readers would not have bought the books had they known the truth about Armstrong’s misconduct and doping. Also named in the suit are several book publishers who produced “It’s Not About the Bike” and “Every Second Counts.” Oh boy, it’ll be interesting to see how this one cycles out.
