"Lance Edward Armstrong" (born September 18, 1971) is a former American professional road bicycle racing/road racing cyclist. Armstrong was classified as having won the Tour de France a record seven consecutive times between 1999 and 2005. Subsequently, the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) presented its findings and in 2012 the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) disqualified Armstrong from those races for doping offenses, banning Armstrong from competitive cycling for life.

A cancer survivor, Armstrong founded the Livestrong Foundation, originally called the Lance Armstrong Foundation, which provides support for cancer patients.

When I got off the bike at the end of the Tour, it was finished.

'Anything is possible. You can be told that you have a 90-percent chance or a 50-percent chance or a 1-percent chance, but you have to believe, and you have to fight.'
