storied battles with cancer, Armstrong's fame grew in part by starring in a series of national advertisements for his sponsor, the US Postal Service.Armstrong's various public announcements for cancer awareness merely added to hispublic exposure.

Sports Illustrated 
even named him "Sportsman of the Year" in 2002, in honor of hisfourth Tour de France victory and incredible perseverance.
coolness factor90
Armstrong is well respected by fellow cyclists. He was the first to use a type of aerobic training that aids in his conditioning for races. While other racers cycle bystanding up and pushing down (which burns up your reserve carbohydrates), Lancesits and pedals in lower gears, thus giving him more oxygen. Many of his fellowcyclists are taking a serious look at Lance's training methods.Evidence of his coolness is his sheer popularity. Most children could not name onecyclist. Yet, the name Lance Armstrong is widespread in North America. When kidstake to the street and bicycle, they invariably invoke the mindset of Lance. Manykids round that last corner on the way home pretend that they too don the yellowchampionship jersey.
personal style60
Lance Armstrong is not a man of fashion. It is rare that you will ever see a photo of him without his bicycle shorts. But, when he isn't racing, he tends to be a very laid-back person. Lance wears a lot of T-shirts and is always in casual mode.He has the mentality of an athlete. As such, Armstrong doesn't care too much abouthis appearance. He always wears his hair extremely short and doesn't appear tohave any stylist dressing him, unlike many people that work in the public eye.That we enter a bike marathon and have Lance Armstrong on our team -- pushing usall the way to the finish line.
