Bike shop owner: Armstrong drama will be forgotten

Oct 22, 2012, 4:42 PM | Updated: 4:42 pm

Beloved cycling hero Lance Armstrong is officially off of the record books, but one Valley bike shop owner feels the ordeal will blow over eventually.

“I think it’s going to have some buzz then it’s going to be forgotten,” said Kevin Miller with Landis Cyclery in Tempe. “It’s going to be old news.”

Miller says the decision to remove Armstrong’s seven Tour de France titles due to a doping scandal is unfortunate because Armstrong has been such an inspiration to a lot of people.
