Keep up to date with the latest on Lance at! This is the story of one man's journey through triumph, tragedy, transformation, and transcendance. It is the story of Lance Armstrong, the six-time winner of the Tour de France, and his fight against cancer.
People magazine called it "inspiring." The New York Times called it "fascinating." But perhaps the Cincinnati Enquirer said it best: "It's not about the bike, or about the sport. It's about the soul."

About Lance Armstrong

Sally Jenkins ist Kolumnistin bei der Washington Post und Co-Autorin zahlreicher Sportbücher.

Lance Armstrong, 1971 in Austin/Texas geboren, ist einer der erfolgreichsten Radrennfahrer der Sportgeschichte und hat 2003 den fünften Triumph in Folge bei der Tour de France erzielt. Sein Erfolg ist um so bemerkenswerter, als bei ihm im Jahre 1996 Hodenkrebs im fortgeschrittenen Stadium diagnostiziert wurde. Wie es ihm gelang, die Krankheit zu besiegen, darüber hat er schon in seinem Bestseller 'Tour des Lebens' (2000) Auskunft gegeben.
