Lance Armstrong ADMITTED to Oprah Winfrey ... he DID use performance-enhancing drugs during his pro cycling career to win the Tour de France ... this according to the Associated Press.

Lance wrapped up his one-on-one interview with Oprah just a few hours ago ... and according to the report, Lance finally 'fessed up to cheating ... the first time he's ever admitted wrongdoing during his professional career.

Earlier in the day, Lance apologized to the staff at Livestrong, choking up and saying he was sorry for letting down the organization.

The way Lance worded his admission could have serious legal ramifications -- considering he's facing possible criminal prosecution and civil liability for allegedly lying about his PED use in a number of legal proceedings.

I don't know who his advisors are but this was one stupid move. Does he really think he can compete again, win and people not believe he cheated??????

Honestly, who cares. It's not as if 99% of the other people that participated in the Tours weren't juicing too. Pretty much all of them are dirty. Level playing field, as far as I'm concerned.

Its so sad how everyone is crucifying this guy. I don't know why I feel bad for him. What he did was wrong, but this is crazy. I wish everyone was this vocal against on pedophiles, adulterers ,deadbeat dads, etc. A lot more would get done in the justice system. Sheesh
