OWN will air a ‘no-holds-barred’ interview with Lance Armstrong on Jan. 17, where he will address cheating accusations and doping allegations during his cycling career.

Lance Armstrong will sit down with Oprah in his first excluisve interview since he was stripped of all of his seven Tour de France titles on August 24. The 90-minute special will air on OWN on January 17 at 9pm EST.

The network said in a statement: “Armstrong will address the alleged doping scandal, years of accusations of cheating, and charges of lying about the use of performance-enhancing drugs throughout his storied cycling career.”

They continued: “Winfrey will speak with Armstrong at his home in Austin, Texas, in his only interview since the seven-time Tour de France winner was stripped of his titles and dropped from millions of dollars in endorsement deals after the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency released an extensive report accusing the renowned cyclist of doping throughout his career. Armstrong was given a lifetime ban on competing professionally. Late last year, Armstrong resigned as chairman of the foundation he created, Livestrong, which has raised hundreds of millions of dollars in the fight against cancer.”

Lance Armstrong Loses Nike Deal & Resigns From Livestrong

On October 17, 2012, Lance issued a statement when he resigned from Livestrong: “This organization, its mission and its supporters are incredibly dear to my heart. Today therefore, to spare the foundation any negative effects as a result of controversy surrounding my cycling career, I will conclude my chairmanship. As my cancer treatment was drawing to an end, I created a foundation to serve people affected by cancer. It has been a great privilege to help grow it from a dream into an organization that today has served 2.5 million people and helped spur a cultural shift in how the world views cancer survivors.”

Nike also released a statement saying they would no longer be working with him after 16 years.

“Due to the seemingly insurmountable evidence that Lance Armstrong participated in doping and misled Nike for more than a decade, it is with great sadness that we have terminated our contract with him. Nike does not condone the use of illegal performance enhancing drugs in any manner.”

1: If this had happened to a Frenchman, this would not have made news.
2: The French are pi$$ed that an AMERICAN beat out THEIR OWN COUNTRYMEN for the title.
3: They are simply jealous that an AMERICAN humiliated them, ON THEIR OWN TURF !
4. If they did not want any Americans racing,then they shoulda kept it closed to ONLY the French, period.
5. ‘ Nuff said.
