Lance Armstrong is the most famous rider in cycling history, but for all the wrong reasons. The American won the sport’s most prestigious event, the Tour De France, seven consecutive times from 1999-2005.
However, his reputation was tarnished when he admitted to doping after his retirement. As a result, all of his achievements from August 1998 including his Tour De France titles were taken away.
There were always suspicions about Armstrong’s performances throughout his career. Armstrong denied these accusations, and often said he had never tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs.
