One of Texas' brightest stars took a hard fall in 2012.
Once considered a hero to many, Lance Armstrong is now accused of playing a large role in the dark side of a sport he loved.
The United States Anti-Doping agency accused Armstrong in June of using steroids and blood boosters during his Tour de France wins from 1999-2005. Armstrong repeatedly denied the charges and even filed counter-lawsuits against USADA.
Eventually, however Armstrong's lawsuits were thrown out and the cancer survivor said he would stop fighting the charges, but still his fans stuck by him.
Once Lance stopped fighting, he was stripped of his Olympic bronze medal, his seven tour titles and was banned from cycling for life.
Sponsors including Nike cut ties with the cyclist after the damning doping report from USADA. Armstrong eventually stepped down from his cancer-fighting organization Livestrong.
Now it's time to see if the man who built his career on fighting back has one comeback left.
