As we discovered from a commenter, seven time Tour de France winner, Lance Armstrong, was born right here in Oak Cliff at Methodist Hospital and lived in the OC for a short while until moving to Richardson and later Plano. Curiously, Wikipedia notes Plano as his birthplace, but his biography lists first living here, and that his mom became pregnant while attending our own Adamson High School. In 1971, Plano would have been a very tiny town far to the north, which makes it all the more doubtful the wikipedia entry is correct.
He returned to the Tour after a 4 year hiatus, and has surprisingly shown good standing. After the 6th stage, he’s climbed to second place (and only one second behind the leader). Keep up with all of the details here: Tour de France Official Website
Just received confirmation from Lance’s mom’s marketing group that he was in fact born at Methodist Hospital, in Oak Cliff.
