Lance Armstrong holds up a glass of champagne during his ride.
Let the celebration begin. Lance Armstrong joined Greg LeMond on Sunday afternoon when he became the second American to win consecutive Tour de Frances and just the 11th rider to ever do it. The Austin, Texas rider, who took control of the race with a magnificent ride in the Pyrénées, was led through the streets of Paris on Sunday by his U.S. Postal Service teammates. One of those teammates, George Hincapie, describes Lance's amazing performance and his overall Tour experience in the final installment of his exclusive ABC Sports Online diary.
