Tour de Lance
Despite the considerable attention being given to Lance Armstrong and his quest for his seventh tour win, it still doesn't seem like many people really grasp the weight of this awe inspiring event. Granted it is only sports, a mere athletic competition, but still the combination of raw talent, training, and dedication needed to win this race six (hopefully seven) times is beyond the comprehension. I am a huge golf fan and was in awe with everybody else when Tiger won four straight majors, but even that amazing feat does not compare to what Lance has done. Granted there are many more golfers than cyclists in the US, but that shouldn't keep us from appreciating this athlete, the likes of which we may never see again.
