Lance Armstrong


BornSeptember 18, 1971


Lance Edward Armstrong is an American former professional road racing cyclist who won the Tour de France a record seven consecutive times after having survived testicular cancer. He is also the founder and chairman of the Lance Armstrong Foundation for cancer support. He last rode for UCI ProTeam Team RadioShack, a team he helped found. He has been accused of doping by high-profile cyclists, journalists, anti-doping agencies and U.S. prosecutors, culminating in the United States Anti-Doping Agency declaring his results since August 1998 to be void. The Union Cycliste Internationale has asked for a reasoned decision before taking action while the World Anti-Doping Agency has expressed its support to USADA and said it has the right to apply a penalty that will be recognized by all WADA code countries around the world.
