Swimming - Phelps. Cycling - Lance Armstrong. This year he won the world's most famous, and toughest, cycling race, Le Tour de France, for a record sixth time. His achievement is even more remarkable because he was diagnosed with cancer a few years ago, and with 70% of his body already consumed, and having to even undergo brain surgery, he was closer to death than to life. He has written one good book and one not so good book. One thing is for sure, he is the hardest working cyclist out there. And cycling is all about homework, time in the saddle, mileage.
