Lance Armstrong said that the upcoming 2010 Tour de France will be the final one of his career.
“This will be [my] final Tour de France. It’s been a great ride. Looking forward to three great weeks,” the cycling legend Tweeted Monday.
The 38-year-old cancer survivor won the race seven straight years from 1999-2005, and ignited a pop culture phenomenon with the yellow Livestrong bracelets that benefited his cancer charity.
Like many athletes, Armstrong has slowed down some in his late-30s . In the past year he’s finished third in the Tours of Switzerland and Luxembourg, and crashed out of the Tour of California.
Armstrong will be riding for the Radio Shack team when the Tour de France starts Saturday in Belgium.
