A truely amazing human feat....
To win the Tour de France once requires supreme commitment, physical capacity, mental strength & a little bit of luck.
To be a multiple winner makes history, to win the event 7 times in a row is history that I think will never be repeated.
Lance Armstrong has overcome all the normal things that would get in the way of the dedication required to win this race, he has also overcome an illness that most people sadly succumb to.
I rarely (in fact never before) have used the term "inspirational" about anyone - but this man is a true inspiration. Whenever I have seen him being interviewed he is always respectful, thoughtful & comes across as genuine & humble guy.
