“We cop to it right there on the cover — see the line reading, ‘Note: Not Armstrong’s real T-shirt,’” say Outside editors, responding to Lance Armstrong‘s complaint. “We wanted to create a provocative image and make a bold statement about the fact that, because of Armstrong’s age, many cycling fans are skeptical of his chances in this year’s Tour de France.”
