Lance Armstrong Sees the Silver Lining in Third Place Finish
Growing up with cycling legend Lance Armstrong for a father, it’s easy to see how twins Isabelle and Grace, 7 ½, and 9 ½-year-old Luke could view their dad as a winner — and never anything else.
That’s why the 37-year-old seven time Tour de France winner says his third place finish in this years’ race is actually “a healthy thing” for all involved. He elaborates,
“Because they saw their dad that never lost, and the kids in their class [say] ‘your dad never loses,’ so it’s good for them to see dad get third and still be cool with that and still be happy.”
Lance — who is also dad to new baby Maxwell ‘Max’ Edward, 7 weeks, with girlfriend Anna Hansen — harbors no regrets about his comeback. “I’m realistic,” he explains. “I did everything I could.”
Isabelle, Grace and Luke are Lance’s children with ex-wife Kristin Richard.
