Lance Armstrong allowed Cycle Sport into his home earlier this month for a candid interview, published in the latest issue of the magazine, out now.

Seven-times Tour de France winner Armstrong speaks openly about his celebrity lifestyle over the past few years, doping in cycling, his love of art and, of course, his comeback to professional cycling that has stunned the cycling community.

Also in this issue, Cycle Sport looks back at the 2008 season in its annual Review of the Year, picks out the 50 best rides of the past 12 months, talks to Bradley McGee as he swaps bike for team car as new directeur sportif for Saxo Bank, takes a historic ride on the iconic Muur Van Geraardsbergen, and much more.

Cycle Sport January 2009 issue is on sale now at WHSmith, major supermarkets and all good newsagents priced £4.
