And yes, this will be final Tour de France. It's been a great ride. Looking forward to 3 great weeks.
LANCE Armstrong has used Twitter to say that this year's Tour de France, which starts on Saturday, July 3 will be his last.
It is his second 'retirement' from the race after stepping down in 2005 before returning last year, finishing in third place behind teammate Alberto Contador.
This year sees Armstrong head up Team RadioShak that includes fellow American Levi Leipheimer and German, Andreas Klöden.
