Associated Press
PARIS -- Lance Armstrong rode into history Sunday, winning a record sixth Tour de France and cementing his place as one of the greatest athletes of all time.

Never in its 101-year history has the Tour had a winner like Armstrong -- who just eight years ago was given less than a 50 percent chance of overcoming testicular cancer that spread to his lungs and brain.

His streak of six straight crowns has helped reinvigorate the greatest race in cycling, steering it into the 21st century. And the Tour, as much a part of French summers as languid meals over chilled rose, molded Armstrong into a sporting superstar.


More here...I think he is the greatest athlete of all time...maybe Ali ahead of him...but with what he has done for his sport...and our nation...I have to give it to him... :-)

And a big :-t to the French folks who claim he's doping. Until he has another test come back positive, they need to shut the hell up.

Wow those are some strong words DHC. Nonetheless, he is pretty damn good. It sucks how people try and knock him, but I guess that comes with the territory with being the best

Winning the biggest event in your sport for six straight years is one thing. Then realizing that he won, while 90% of the people were on drugs, makes him truly amazing. Cycling has always had the most drug users of any sport, yet Lance has taken the most drug tests of any athlete in the world and never failed.
