He has stood on the top step of the Champs-Élysées seven times, losing all seven Tour de France victories. It has long been true that while most of his opponents have been arrested by anti-doping commissioners, he continues to escape. But Lance Armstrong’s lie didn’t last forever. The former cyclist, who conquered cancer, but for many people is mostly synonymous with scam, turns 50 this Saturday, September 18.

Triathlon transition

Lance Armstrong was born September 18, 1971 in Plano, Texas. He never knew his father, he grew up with his mother and through his sports career he wanted to give her everything back. Earn money and secure a family.

He started out as a triathlete and even became a two-time national champion. He soon discovered that the best way would be to specialize in cycling. In 1992, he signed a contract with the professional team of Motorola, a year later he won the world championships in Oslo.

The young man with great confidence also promoted himself in other races, he also participated in the Tour de France, but so far without entering the results.
