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.
This is unbelievable. I really wish these fighters would stay away. I realize that is easy for someone that is not willing to get beat up for a living to say, but this is part of what has made boxing really go down the toilet.
