In this July 24, 2005, file photo, Lance Armstrong, of Austin, Texas, holds the winner's trophy as his son Luke, rear right, his twin daughters Grace, right, and Isabelle, look on, after winning his seventh straight Tour de France cycling race, during ceremonies on the Champs-Elysees avenue in Paris, after the 21st and final stage of the race between Corbeil-Essonnes, south of Paris, and the French capital. Almost a month after finishing 65th in his last competitive race in Australia, and nearly six years removed from the last of an unprecedented seven straight Tour de France titles, the 39-year-old cyclist made clear there is no reset button this time. He is retiring from cycling.
