Not necessarily a positive activity in which to involve oneself.
Bike riding, however, is still the best.

And Vaughters, TD, Levi, etc. All very concerned. I would be too. What if LA blows the lid off this “we all decided to quit doping and race clean in 2006” nonsense? Could be trouble in the tangled web.
“My biggest concern is that it will be completely stage-managed, that he will just be ‘given the ball,’ and that it will all be about his emotions rather than concentrating on exactly what he did wrong,” said Millar.

He’s one of those triathlon guys when it’s all said and done.
…In the end, no matter how much Tygart and Armstrong had fought each other, they still needed each other. Armstrong, 41, would like to resume competing in triathlons and running events that are sanctioned by organizations that follow the World Anti-Doping Code. Tygart wants to know how Armstrong so skillfully eluded testing positive for banned drugs for nearly a decade.
“I think it’s very valuable to them to know exactly how Lance avoided getting caught and how tests were evaded,” said Jonathan Vaughters, a former Armstrong teammate, a vocal antidoping proponent and a current co-owner of the Garmin-Sharp professional cycling team. “They need someone on the inside to tell them how it was done, and not just anyone on the inside, someone on the inside who was very influential. Someone like Lance.”
Bunk-owski. Tygart knows exactly how Armstrong dunnit, because the other guys who had also “eluded positive tests for nearly a decade” testified all about it. And those guys are on Vaughters’ team. He reaches the seventh level of weasel in his quote above.
(After 6-month suspensions those fellas will be back racing and cashing in on their doping by next season. But of course, they all decided at exactly the same time not to do it any more, and race totes clean now. ALL CLEAN NOW. Go home.)
