Revised List of Tour de France winners

The list of Tour de France winners has been updated by Wikipedia, as shown below:

The list has been updated after the Union of Cycling upheld the allegations of USADA against Lance Armstrong who previously held the titles consecutively from 1999 to 2005.

This is a short note dedicated to Lance Armstrong by me:

It will be acknowledged, even by those that practise it not, that clear, and round dealing, is the honour of man’s nature; and that mixture of falsehoods, is like an alloy in the coin of gold and silver, which may make the metal work better, but it embaseth it. For these winding, and crooked courses, are the goings of the serpent; which goeth basely upon the belly, and not upon the feet. There is no vice, that doth so cover a man with shame, as to be found false and perfidious. And therefore the reason why the word of the lie should be such a disgrace, and such an odious charge is that if it be well weighed, to say that a man lies, is as much to say, as that he is brave towards God, and a coward towards men. For a lie faces God, and shrinks from man.

Lance Armstrong
