The Tour de France
Lance is best known for literally going from his deathbed to becoming the first person in history to win the Tour de France, cycling's biggest competition, seven consecutive times. Many consider the Tour to be the most grueling athletic competition in the world: riders travel more than 2,000 miles in 23 days. But Lance says beating cancer is the sweetest victory of all.
