AUSTIN, Texas (AP)

Local and international news crews are staking out positions in front of Lance Armstrong's lush, Spanish-style villa ahead of the cyclist's interview with Oprah Winfrey later Monday.

News crews began arriving before dawn, hoping to catch a glimpse of Winfrey or Armstrong, who jogged through the neighborhood on Sunday.

After a decade of denials, Armstrong is expected to apologize and come clean about his role in an alleged doping scheme on the U.S. Postal Service teams.

Armstrong won the Tour de France seven times, but was stripped of those titles in 2012 and issued a lifetime ban after a U.S. Anti-Doping Agency report laid out details and witness testimony about doping on Armstrong's teams.

The property is about an acre and surrounded by a tall limestone wall with large cast iron gates at the entrances to driveway.
