This past May, the cyclist denied the allegations that he had used performancing-enhancing drugs. He also was hospitalized in May after crashing touring the Tour de California race.

To date, Armstrong has won seven Tour de France titles. The champion cyclist has also raised over $325 million toward fighting cancer, a disease he has battled for years. Currently, his cancer is in remission.
