26 Famous Quotes by Lance Armstrong

Lance Armstrong is a former professional cyclist who won seven consecutive Tour de France titles from 1999 to 2005.

Armstrong's fall from grace serves as a cautionary tale about the dangers of pursuing success at all costs. It also raises important questions about the ethics of sports and the responsibility of athletes to act with integrity. (Lance Armstrong Biography).
