"You win the Tour de France seven times," Armstrong told Winfrey. "You have a happy marriage. You have children. I mean, it's just this mythic perfect story, and it wasn't true... I'll spend the rest of my life trying to earn back trust and apologize to people."
"Oprah and Lance Armstrong: The Worldwide Exclusive" continues January 18 on OWN and Oprah.com. In this sneak preview, Winfrey asks Armstrong about his ego, the sponsors who pulled out after reports were released on his doping allegations, and more.
Among the career low points Armstrong recounts to Winfrey: "Nike called. They're out. That was a $75-million dollar day."
