Cancer was definately an obstacle in my life. That caused me to be weak and the funny thing is, that I still won Tour De France when I was sick, but that was before it got bad. The doctors told me I would probably only have one year to live when diagnosed with cancer in 1996. But I took a big risk, as medicine made me very sick but it cured my cancer. Now a big event in my life was winning the Tour De France six times in a row but I had to have help from my team. I know I get all the credit but my team should because when it is windy my team will get in front of me to block the wind, so I couldn't do it with out them.
