End of an era | Lance Armstrong

Today was the last competitive day in the Tour de France 2005. Lance Armstrong, the man that made history each year since the first time he won the tour after beating cancer, wrote history for the last time. He won his seven-in-a-row Tour de France by beating all his competitors on the time trial. Well, actually he had such a gap with his opponents that he could have done easy today, but he didn’t. He wanted to win. His last competitive race should be won. And he did. I’ve seen the highlights of the race four or five times after the live coverage and I’ll see them again in the future. You’ll see them again in the future. Lance Armstrong is a living legend. Today was the last day we’ve seen him alive as an athlete. Thank you Lance for being such an inspirator for man kind. I’ll miss you and I’ll remember you. The end of an era.
