You are talking about Lance Armstrong and I am talking about those who exposed his doping practices. But yes, you must be right about his pride. But it must have been tempered somewhat by always having to be quiet about it, into a sort of lifestyle overshadowed by a psychopathic battle of wits. That would be an interesting discussion and probably involved more than just pride alone. But about those who exposed him, I think jealousy would be closer to what they had than envy. I think they all did not want what he had. I think that rather, they wanted no one to have it rather than Lance to have it (the titled, fame, etc), so they took it away from him and then none of them had anything. That would be the work of jealousy.
