Lance Armstrong

Lance Edward Armstrong (born September 18, 1971) is an American former professional road racing cyclist. Armstrong is the 1993 professional world champion, and won the Tour de France a record seven consecutive times from 1999 to 2005. However, in 2012, he was banned from sanctioned Olympic sports for life as a result of long-term doping offenses. As part of those sanctions, all results going back to August 1998, including his seven Tour wins, were voided.

Pain is temporary. Quitting lasts forever.

I have no magic potion, although there are some who think I do.

He's conservative, but when he needs to be competitive he's a killer. He has an amazing engine.

My son Luke thinks it's cool that his dad quit his job

no desire to thank him for anything.

I think it's better we downplay our chances. I think we should cherish this role as the underdog because it's the perfect way to ride this race.

If you dominate a world sport you will always have questions and doubts. Perhaps at the end of the day we were too successful. When you win the Tour once twice seven times it is just too hard to believe.

There is no way I can go back there (France). I would be crazy, so why don't we all just say I am not going back.

[But the strongest reason he gave for discounting the results of the B-sample tests from France was heartfelt and honest and totally typical of the iconic cancer survivor.] A guy who comes back from arguably you know a death sentence ... Why would I then enter into a sport and dope myself up and risk my life again? That's crazy. I would never do that. No. No way.

I started fast and hard it was difficult with a hard climb and long downhill with headwind. It was a 100 percent effort all the way but that's OK

My role is pretty much unchanged.

It has been an honor for me to call Austin home. It is my pleasure to say thanks to my fellow residents for their continued support.

We started out at a very young age setting goals ... Lance wasn't a follower he was a leader. All his friends went off to college and Lance said all he wanted to do was ride his bike.

Were ethical codes violated? Absolutely.

It really meant a lot and for a number of different reasons

Yeah. Sheryl and I are very happy. To me when you have a relationship you're happy and in love children are a natural part of the equation

The Tour de France is not the only bike race in the world but it is the biggest so the possibility could still exist to do a Tour of Italy a Tour of Spain.

[Not as long as Armstrong is riding. Asked at the end of the second week whether he thought he was] too much of a force for the Tour's own good ... I don't know. But I know that I love the race. I love everything that it stands for. It is what they pay me to do. This is my job. They say 'Lance we want you to win the Tour de France.' That's what the team wants what the sponsors want what cycling fans in America want what cancer survivors around the world want.

Dave cut one out the shape of a saddle with just the beads and said 'Here I thought you might like this.' ... But the two together like the seat and this (basket) I might come back for No. 8.

Ivan was the strongest today. I didn't give it to him
