Cycling champion John Eustice claims Lance Armstrong part of doping 'system'

This morning on "Starting Point with Soledad O'Brien," two-time Cycling Champion John Eustice weighs in on Lance Armstrong's doping admission. Eustice says Armstrong was part of a wider doping 'system' in sports.

"I think Lance is a lifetime athlete and he understands how the system works," Eustice says. "He understands where his position is, and he doesn't feel he should be the only one punished as representative of an entire system of stardom and money and money generation."

"I think there are at least ten other teams in the Tour De France that have exactly the same system as during his era," Eustice says.

    When you are thinking of buying a bike, one of the things you have to keep in mind for you to have a more comfortable, fun and enjoyable ride is finding the right road handlebar width that suits you best. There are several ways to find the right road handlebar width, but the most common and most accurate way is having someone measure the distance between the two pointy bones on front of your shoulders. Once you got the measurement, find out how the road handlebar you intend to use is measured.
