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.

no desire to thank him for anything.
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.
My role is pretty much unchanged.
[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.
Ivan was the strongest today. I didn't give it to him
