2005: Lance Armstrong wins his seventh consecutive Tour de France and retires afterward. He later un-retired in 2008 and would compete in two more Tour de France competitions, finishing third in 2009 and 23rd place in 2010. However, in 2012 the United States Anti-Doping Agency would disqualify him from those races and ban him from cycling for life for doping offenses.
