Lance Edward Armstrong is an American former professional road racing cyclist.

Armstrong was classified as having won the Tour de France a record seven consecutive times between 1999 and 2005 before he was disqualified from all those races and banned from competitive cycling for life, for doping offenses by the Union Cycliste Internationale in 2012, after the United States Anti-Doping Agency presented its findings.

A cancer survivor, he is the founder of the Livestrong Foundation, originally called the Lance Armstrong Foundation, which provides support for cancer patients.

At age 16, Armstrong began competing as a triathlete and was a national sprint-course triathlon champion in 1989 and 1990.

In 1992, Armstrong began his career as a professional cyclist with the Motorola team.

He had notable success between 1993 and 1996, including the World Championship in 1993, Cl√°sica de San Sebasti√°n in 95, Tour DuPont in 95 and 96, and a handful of stage victories in Europe, including stage 18 of the 1995 Tour de France.

In October 1996, he was diagnosed with testicular cancer that had spread to his brain, lungs and abdomen.
