FILE - In this July 6, 2004, file photo, U.S. Postal Service's Lance Armstrong rides ahead of Team Phonak's Tyler Hamilton,, center, and T-Mobile's Jan Ullrich, of Germany, during the third stage of the Tour de France cycling race between Waterloo, Belgium, and Wasquehal, northern France.

It began with a smile at the starting line.
