<br />Armstrong SI's Sportsman of the Year<br />www.cyclingnews.com<br />Lance Armstrong has been named Sports Illustrated's Sportsman of the Year for 2002. In winning his fourth consecutive Tour, Armstrong kept cycling on the front pages in the United States in July. In discussing his legacy, Lance told Sports Illustrated, &quot;There's never been a Tour de France victory by a cancer survivor before me. That's what I'd like to be remembered for.&quot; <br /><br />Armstrong joins Greg LeMond as the only cyclists to receive the Sportsman of the Year honor. LeMond won in 1989 after his second Tour de France victory. <br />
