Lance Armstrong offers Paul Kimmage the chance to take him on at Dublin event

Lance Armstrong publicly called out Paul Kimmage on Tuesday, twenty-four hours after the journalist did the same on Irish national radio.

It’s been a whirlwind twenty-four hours for One Zero Conference in Dublin on October 21st, but such is the high octane world of sports.

A significant proportion of interest has been gathering around the appearance of Lance Armstrong at the Conference in Dublin on October 21st.

Armstrong is a controversial figure in the world of cycling and the business that surrounds it, who will be present.

He is though perhaps the one name that has captured the interest of sports fans.

Overnight Lance Armstrong made it clear, to the One Zero Team and also via Twitter, that he wants just one person in the chair opposite him; Paul Kimmage.

The questions Oprah was afraid to. Lance Armstrong live and uncut, only at One Zero Conference in Dublin on October 21st.

Irish freelance journalist Ewan MacKenna is pencilled in to conduct a live Q&A with Armstrong in what co-founder Rob Hartnett has called ”certainly the first time Lance will be back in Ireland since he opened up about the doping and that period of his life”.

However, Kimmage, who dedicated years of his career to exposing Armstrong’s use of performance-enhancing drugs, told Hartnett on The Last Word earlier this week that he would’ve “paid him” for the opportunity to quiz the 45-year-old American at the event.

And last night, Armstrong tweeted Kimmage:

Kimmage appeared willing to take up the offer with his second response, while Brazil-based MacKenna suggested he would be happy to step aside:

But this morning, Kimmage poured cold water on the prospect of him featuring at One Zero Con:

That is happening regardless.

With leaders from Twitter, the US Olympic Committee, Jaimie Fuller (SKINS) and many others being part of the debates on investment, innovation, technology, media and more, it’s clear that One Zero has talent on show throughout the entire event.

Sir Clive Woodward on leadership and the Lions, and Shane Lowry on the multi-million world of elite golf; these are the kind of stories that we at One Zero are bringing to Dublin.

One Zero is much more than a conference, or an interview. It's about putting on the best event possible and firmly cementing Ireland’s place on the map as a leading country in the worlds of sports, business and shit-hot content.

Tickets for One Zero are shipping quickly and are available at: www.onezerocon.com
