In 1999, two-time Olympian Lance Armstrong staged what many considered to be the most dramatic comeback in sports history, winning the Tour de France just 3 years after his body was ravaged by cancer. He went on to win the Tour de France a record-breaking 7 consecutive years, from 1999 to 2005, becoming an international icon and peerless legend in the cycling world. Behind this success is a multifaceted plan of strengthening, bicycling, and eating--so strong and so effective that it created history. With "The Lance Armstrong Performance Program," cyclists of every experience level can find the exercises, riding schedules, endurance builders, and mental tricks that brought Lance back to the pinnacle of cycling.
