In a solo breakaway, Lance Armstrong won the1993 World Professional Road Race Cham-pionshipin Oslo, Norway. With the retirementof Greg LeMond the following year, a new erahad begun. Arrogant, combative, often cold and surly –yetcapable of considerable charisma when to hisadvantage Armstrong represented an unwel-come change from the first generation of  American professionals.Initially, he seemed more suited to one-day races (his win at the 1996 FlècheWallonnemade him the first American to win a classic)and short stage races. Despite stage wins in1993 and 1995, his Tour record was thoroughly undistinguished: in four starts from 1993-96,he finished only once, placing 36th in 1995.

In October 1996, Armstrong was diagnosed withadvanced testicular cancer, which had spreadthroughout his body. He was given a 20% chanceof survival. Armstrong underwent both surgery and chemo-therapy, and convalesced throughout 1997. Hemarried and started a family.From there, the rest is rather familiar history: Armstrong made a complete recovery and won anunprecedented seven Tours de France from1999-2005, becoming an international sporting icon on par with any other.He started the Lance Armstrong Foundation (akaLivestrong), which provides support and educa-tionto those stricken with cancer, and helps tofund cancer research. His two books,
It’s Not  About the Bike 
, and
