Lance Armstrong has asserted his innocence after former U.S. Postal Service cycling teammate Tyler Hamilton accused him of repeatedly cheating. Armstrong took to Twitter, using a defense that's grown familiar by now: his history of hundreds of passed drug tests.
20+ year career. 500 drug controls worldwide, in and out of competition. Never a failed test. I rest my case.
Of course, the interesting wrinkle this time is that Hamilton is claiming Armstrong did fail one drug test. While surely there are records of that particular test just a-sittin' around somewhere, Hamilton's charge preemptively dug into Armstrong's retort itself.
