Over the years, the public perspective on Lance Armstrong has changed quite a bit. He was praised as a champion and cancer survivor, but revelations about his past turned him into a cheater and social outcast. Of all the people he betrayed and abused, Lance Armstrong's former assistant and bike mechanic, Mike Anderson, has more than a few bones to pick, and very few of them have to do with doping.
Anderson claims there's a dark side to the man behind the helmet. From 2002 to 2004, Anderson was responsible for dealing with Armstrong's personal and professional dramas, and there were plenty. Based on Anderson's story, you won't ever want to feel the wrath of Lance Armstrong. Anderson was forced to move to New Zealand to rebuild his life and career after the former cycling great and worst boss ever destroyed his reputation in the media.
