Lance Armstrong will retire after this year's Tour de France, ending a cycling career in which he inspired millions by overcoming testicular cancer to
win his sport's signature event a record six straight times.
Armstrong said he remains "fully committed" to winning his seventh straight Tour de France this year and is driven "by that dream to go out on top.
That's a big deal to me."
Its a real treat that he still get to watch him do all this that he can do, and its going to be sad that he is leaving, but maybe its time for him to
retire off into the sun, and give the other riders a chance to make it.
