This year's Tour de France will be Lance Armstrong's last, according to sources close to Lance Armstrong named Lance Armstrong.
Via his Twitter feed:
And yes, this will be final Tour de France. It's been a great ride. Looking forward to 3 great weeks.
Straight from the source, that's the confirmation that Armstrong is done as a participant in the Tour de France after this year. The Tour begins on Saturday.
Armstrong won the race seven times from 1999-2005 and dominated as no other rider in the modern era has. He previously retired from cycling in 2005, only to return to last year's Tour de France in which he finished third.
(Brett Favre doesn't understand why Lance is being so decisive, or what the rush is with all this, but he'll be out back on a tractor vaguely texting Chris Mortensen if you need him.)
