Publicidade

Lance Armstrong é um ex-ciclista profissional americano, campeão de ciclismo em estrada em 1993. Ficou famoso por ter vencido o Tour de France por sete vezes consecutivas — um recorde absoluto nessa prova — entre 1999 e 2005. Todavia, em 2012, alguns anos após encerrar sua carreira esportiva, perdeu todos os títulos obtidos depois de 1998 e foi banido do ciclismo competitivo pela União Ciclística Internacional, em razão do uso de dopagem bioquímica.

Como consequência perdeu os sete títulos do Tour de France que conquistara entre 1999 e 2005, período em que voltou a competir, após se ter curado de um cancro testicular, diagnosticado em 1996.

Em novembro de 2012, a revista Sports Illustrated divulgou uma lista de atletas mais anti-desportivos do ano. O ciclista ficou na primeira posição. Dez anos antes, a revista já o havia premiado com o troféu Fair Play por seus valores desportivos.

Citações Lance Armstrong

„I want to die at a hundred years old with an American flag on my back and the star of Texas on my helmet, after screaming down an Alpine descent on a bicycle at 75 miles per hour.“

— Lance Armstrong
Context: I want to die at a hundred years old with an American flag on my back and the star of Texas on my helmet, after screaming down an Alpine descent on a bicycle at 75 miles per hour. I want to cross one last finish line as my wife and my ten children applaud, and then I want to lie down in a field of those famous French sunflowers and gracefully expire, the perfect contradiction to my once anticipated poignant early demise. p. 1

„I'll be a fan of the Tour de France for as long as I live. And there are no secrets — this is a hard sporting event and hard work wins it. So Vive le Tour forever!“

— Lance Armstrong
Context: Finally, the last thing I’ll say to the people who don’t believe in cycling, the cynics and the sceptics: I'm sorry for you. I’m sorry that you can’t dream big. I'm sorry you don't believe in miracles. But this is one hell of a race. This is a great sporting event and you should stand around and believe it. You should believe in these athletes, and you should believe in these people. I'll be a fan of the Tour de France for as long as I live. And there are no secrets — this is a hard sporting event and hard work wins it. So Vive le Tour forever! Farewell speech at the Champs-Élysées podium, after winning his seventh Tour de France, quoted in [http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/low/europe/4713283.stm "Paris salutes its American hero" by Caroline Wyatt in BBC News (24 July 2005)]

„How do you propel yourself through space on a bicycle, sometimes steeply uphill, at a speed sustainable for three weeks? Every second counts.“

— Lance Armstrong
Context: The Tour (de France) is essentially a math problem, a 2,000-mile race over three weeks that's sometimes won by a margin of a minute or less. How do you propel yourself through space on a bicycle, sometimes steeply uphill, at a speed sustainable for three weeks? Every second counts. p. 157

„A boo is a lot louder than a cheer, if you have 10 people cheering and one person booing all you hear is the booing.“

— Lance Armstrong
As quoted in [http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/features/2002/sportsman/flashbacks/lance/king_of_the_hill "King of the Hill" by Kelli Anderson in Sports Illustrated (5 August 2002)]

„What is stronger, fear or hope?“

— Lance Armstrong, It's Not About the Bike: My Journey Back to Life

„Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, or an hour, or a day, or a year, but eventually it will subside and something else will take its place. If I quit, however, it lasts forever.“

— Lance Armstrong, It's Not About the Bike: My Journey Back to Life
Armstrong, Lance. It's Not About the Bike: My Journey Back to Life. New York: Berkley Books, 2001 "Back in the Saddle - An Essay by Lance Armstrong", as quoted in The Book of Action (2006) by Jeramy L. Patrick and Justin L. Helms, p. 68
