News just in from CNN- Lance Armstrong has announced his retirement from professional cycling. This years Tour de France will be his last.
Lance is arguably the greatest cyclist of all time and his retirement, while not entirely unexpected, is sad news. The six-time winner (the only rider to ever win that many Tours) will try to get a seventh victory under his belt before he hangs up his shorts. I really hope that he can win this year's Tour de France and go out in a blaze of glory. His focused approach and high-tech training have raised the standard for cycling- his domination of the Tour has been absolutely stunning, he's at a whole different level from the other riders in the peloton.
Here's wishing him luck for a seventh victory.
