Lance Armstrong To Retire… For Good This Time?

Say the name Lance Armstrong to someone who doesn’t follow cycling and it’s a good bet that they’ll still know who he is.

Cycling fan or not, you have to admire the man. On top of winning a whopping seven Tour de France races, the man decided he wasn’t famous enough for his endurance and went out and beat cancer. He also became world famous in a sport that isn’t exactly a breeding ground for world famous-ness.

Armstrong has announced that he will be retiring, for good this time around, claiming that his age is finally catching up with him. Armstrong had previously retired for three years in 2005.

β€œIt has been an excellent ride,” he told The Associated Press. β€œI really thought I was going to win another Tour. Then I lined up like everybody else and wound up third.”

And while I’m sure Lance would have preferred to end his career with another Tour de France indivudal win, his team still managed to net a win with the lowest overall combined time of the competing teams.

Lance Armstrong is, unfortunately, under investigation amd accusations of performance enhancing drug use.

Personally, I think he was just that good.
