2001: Lance Armstrong becomes the first American to win three consecutive Tours de France. He would go on to more than double that number, winning a total of seven straight through 2005. 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.
