SIR Chris Hoy has told of his frustration at having to defend cycling in the wake of the Lance Armstrong drug cheating revelations.

The six-time Olympic champion and Freeman of Edinburgh blamed the “greed and deception” of a small minority for casting shadows on the sport.

Armstrong this week admitted using performance-enhancing drugs during all seven of his Tour De France victories.

Sir Chris said: “My team mates and I will compete clean and try to win gold medals to show the next generation that it is possible.”
