Armstrong proves greatness with second Tour win
1999 was the Year of the Comeback. 2000 is the Year of Vindication for Lance Armstrong -- proof that the 28-year-old American is the world's greatest cyclist. As Marco Pantani and Alex Zulle dropped out mid-Tour, second-placed Jan Ullrich couldn't catch up and it was Armstrong who came out on top for a second straight year. While he rejoiced on the Parisian podium, hoisting his 9-month-old son, Luke, in the air, the Texan's hometown of Austin was holding its own celebration.
