Lance wins for a record 6th time

This is the first year I've watched the Tour de France, and that also for the last few days only. The main reason I started watching it was Lance Armstrong. This is a man who suffered from testicular cancer, had a major surgery, was barely given a chance of survival and has now accomplished the greatest task in the world of cycling after coming back from all that.

He's a great athlete, you cannot doubt that after seeing him. This is the first time anybody has won the Tour de France six times, and he's done it in six years. He's on par with Tiger Woods and Michael Schumacher, these people totally dominate their sport. I hope he comes back next year, and does not retire.
