30 for 30: Lance tells the story of Armstrong’s astronomic rise as a prodigious young cyclist, his battle with testicular cancer, his emergence as a global icon with seven consecutive Tour de France wins and then his public fall from grace after he was exposed in one of the largest doping scandals in history.

Armstrong first became the subject of doping allegations after he won the 1999 Tour de France, but for years denied all accusations of misconduct.
In 2012, he was described as “the ringleader of the most sophisticated, professionalised and successful doping program that sport has ever seen” after an investigation concluded that he had used performance-enhancing drugs over the course of his career.
Then, after years of public denials Armstrong admitted to doping in an explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey in January 2013.

Armstrong features in the documentary alongside a collection of his old teammates, friends, rivals, and journalists – all of whom were close to the remarkable saga as it unfolded.
Emmy award-winning filmmaker Marina Zenovich, who has featured subjects like Roman Polanski, Richard Pryor and Robin Williams in her work, directed 30 for 30: Lance.
The latest study of Armstrong is a compelling take on an incredible story – from his win-at-all-costs cycling career to his life after infamy.
