FILE - In this July 29, 2007 file photo, Lance Armstrong, seated into a car of the Discovery Channel cycling team, right, jokes with teammate George Hincapie during the 20th and last stage of the 94th Tour de France cycling race between Marcoussis, southwest of Paris, and Paris. Hincapie was the "Loyal Lieutenant" who helped Lance Armstrong to seven Tour de France titles, only to later provide the key testimony that brought his downfall. Now, Hincapie is peeling back the shroud that has long covered the dark era of doping in cycling in a book due out next month that is part memoir, part mea culpa.
