Armstrong lived through cancer and went on to win Tour de France races seven times in a row.
At that time he was everyone’s dream hero who had won simply by strenuous exercise or that is what he wanted everyone to believe. Indeed, all that auras came crashing down when it was discovered that he had been on performance enhancing drugs. This discovery was an irony for a man who had an illustrious professional cycling career from which he retired in 2011, a year before the results came out.
The investigations henceforth banned him from being associated with the sport and from representing his country. It seemed that all that he gained from 1998 had become void. Indeed, the ongoing lawsuit that stands to be the biggest against him is that which has been filed by US Postal Service. The organization had sponsored Armstrong and his team for the time span from 2000 to 2004.
