Disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong, who cheated his way to win seven Tour de France titles, said it would have been impossible to win the famous race without doping.
"My name was taken out of the palmares (list of achievements) but the Tour was held between 1999 and 2005 wasn't it?
"There must be a winner then. Who is he? Nobody came forward to claim my jerseys."
Bernard Hinault, who won the Tour five times, reacted by telling TV channel BFM: "He must not know what it was like to ride without doping."
