PARIS -- Lance Armstrong closed out his amazing career with a seventh consecutive Tour de France victory Sunday -- and did it a little earlier than expected.
Because of wet conditions, race organizers stopped the clock as Armstrong and the main pack entered Paris. Although riders were still racing, with eight laps of the Champs-Elysees to complete, organizers said that Armstrong had officially won.
The stage started as it has done for the past six years -- with Armstrong celebrating and wearing the race leader's yellow jersey.
Congrats to a guy who overcame a hell of a lot to be a sucess.
For those who are curious to check it out now, the Faber/Pulver fight is pretty easily found via Google. I forgot to add this before, but Frank Mir is incredible at color commentary. And I'm glad he's not doing the post fight interviews anymore.
