Lance Armstrong squares off with Paul Kimmage

I was listening to the live feed of the Amgen Tour of California press conference last night via an internet feed, when fireworks started to fly! The press conference was pretty typical at first, with nearly all questions being directed at Lance. He even said at one point, "hey I'm not the only rider in this room". Referring to George Hincapie, Levi Leipheimer, Christian VanDevelde, and Ivan Basso sitting right next to him. I was running in and out of the house trying to BBQ and listen without missing anything. One reporter began to ask Lance a question about doping. Lance paused and said, what is your name sir? Then must have remembered that this particular reporter (Paul Kimmage) had in the past called Lance "the cancer of the peloton". Lance proceeded to rip into him and said he is not worth the chair he is sitting on, among other things.
