Armstrong bribed me with $100K hidden in cake box: cyclist

Leave the bike, take the cannoli.
Here’s an all-time tale to add to the ledger of disgraced doper Lance Armstrong: A retired Italian cyclist alleges Armstrong gave him a $100,000 bribe in a cake box to let him win a 1993 race in the United States with a $1 million purse.
“It was a young American colleague,” Roberto Gaggioli told the Corriere della Sera, according to a translation. ”He offered me a panettone [a traditional Italian Christmas cake] as a present and wished me a merry Christmas. In the box there were $100,000 in small bills. That colleague was Lance Armstrong.
