Alex Chadwick speaks with Daniel Coyle, author of Lance Armstrong's War, an account of Armstrong's ride to victory in the 2004 Tour de France. Armstrong battled back from testicular cancer to win a record six consecutive yellow jerseys in the biking world's most prestigious race, and this weekend will pedal for a seventh consecutive title. Armstrong has vowed that this Tour de France will be his last.
