It’s only a coincidence, though, that Dombrowski, perhaps the sport’s brightest phenom, begins his pro cycling career in Nice.
This is the same city in which Lance Armstrong lived and trained shortly after recovering from cancer, and just before winning his first two Tours de France.
“It’s definitely unique when someone like that comes along because it doesn’t happen very often,” said George Hincapie, a veteran cyclist who has ridden the Tour de France 17 times.
When Armstrong came out of retirement in 2008 to race again, he convinced his sponsors to help establish an under-23 developmental team that would compete under Livestrong, the banner of his anti-cancer foundation.It wasn’t long ago that he was simply riding his bike on weekends along Skyline Drive through Shenandoah National Park.As he kept getting faster, opportunities opened up, prompting him to leave his home near Warrenton, abandon his studies at George Mason University and uproot his life.“You have to be realistic about it.” Dombrowski knew of Armstrong, but only from a distance.The brash Texan’s decade-long dominance in the Tour de France predated Dombrowski’s interest in the sport.
