Lance Armstrong's Biography

Lance Armstrong is American cyclist who, after battling testicular cancer won seven consecutive Tour de France titles from 1999 through 2005. 

Armstrong, and his titles, are disputed because the United States Anti-Doping Agency claims that he used illicit performance-enhancing drugs while competing. Armstrong maintains his innocence, but in August, 2012 he stopped officially fighting the charges. The USADA subsequently banned Armstrong from racing for the rest of his life and maintained that he must foreit all titles and medals dating back to Aug. 1, 1998.

A Texas native born on Sept. 18, 1971, Armstrong was diagnosed with testicular cancer in October of 1996 at the age of 25. After successfully beating the cancer, Armstrong founded the Lance Armstrong Foundation to support people affected by cancer. The foundation is famous for its yellow "Livestrong" bracelets.
