After retired cyclist Lance Armstrong posted a vulgar tweet gloating that he “blew the f**kin’ doors off” Vice President on a bike path, conservative commentator and Blexit movement leader Candace Owens replied with a sarcastic quiz.

On Saturday, Armstrong tweeted:

“I can’t drop many people on a bike these days but I just blew the fuckin’ doors off Mike Pence on a Nantucket bike path. Day. Made.”

The next day, Owens replied by posting her quiz:

“What do VP Mike Pence and Lance Armstrong have in common?

“Neither of them has won a Tour de France.


As Encyclopedia Britannica explains, Armstrong actually did win seven Tour de France competitions, but was stripped of all of the titles and banned for life due to a doping scandal:

Lance Armstrong, (born September 18, 1971, Plano, Texas, U.S.), American cyclist, who was the only rider to win seven Tour de France titles (1999–2005) but who was later stripped of all his titles after an investigation revealed that he was the key figure in a wide-ranging doping conspiracy while he compiled his Tour victories.


In January 2013, during a televised interview with Oprah Winfrey, Armstrong finally admitted to taking performance-enhancing drugs from the mid-1990s through 2005.

Owens’ Blexit movement seeks to introduce urban society to conservative values.
