Lance Armstrong: Retirement 2.0

Lance Armstrong: Retirement 2.0

Lance Armstrong says his professional cycling career is over, and this time he really means it.

A month after a lackluster finish in the Tour Down Under, Armstrong tells the Associated Press that he has no regrets about coming out of retirement in 2008 and trying for an 8th Tour de France win. "It's been an excellent ride. I really thought I was going to win another Tour," Armstrong said in an interview in Austin. "Then I lined up like everybody else and wound up third."

Although his seven Tour de France victories constitute a record, Armstrong's career has been dogged by allegations of doping in his former US Postal team. He is currently being investigated by FDA special agent Jeff Novitzky and fresh allegations surfaced in Sports Illustrated last month.
