Lance Armstrong is one of the all time best. He won the tour de France 7 times in a row. But before he did that he had already had to fight off cancer that had spread to his brain. He retired in 2006. He then came back in 2009 to ride in the tour de France. He finished 3rd that year. Armstrong rode the tour de France this year (2010), and then retired again.
