You voted en masse to make Armstrong's demise the flameout of 2012. For years, Betsy Andreu knew about Armstrong's use of performance enhancing drugs. Her husband Frankie was on Armstong's team in the 90s. But, after going public, she says they faced a vitriolic backlash that threatened to tear their lives apart.
