Tour de Lance

Postby Homeless » Sun Jul 27, 2003 5:54 pm

Lance Armstrong claimed his fifth consecutive Tour de France title as expected on Sunday.

The 31-year-old American becomes only the second rider to win five Tours in a row and one of five men to have won five Tours in total.

The final stage was won by French sprinter Jean-Patrick Nazon, with Armstrong keeping well out of trouble at the back of the peloton.

Armstrong joins Tour legends Eddy Merckx, Bernard Hinault, Miguel Indurain and Jacques Anquetil as a five-time winner of cycling's biggest race.

"It's a great feeling when someone like Hinault comes to you on the podium to say 'welcome to the club'," said Armstrong, who beat German Jan Ullrich by 61 seconds overall, his narrowest Tour win by far.


Kazakh Alexander Vinokourov was third, four minutes 14 seconds behind the US Postal team leader.

Lance is frickin amazing considering everything he has overcome to get where he is and still be only 1 of 2 to win 5 straight, Indurain was the other
