Lance Armstrong frequent target of Pulitzer Prize winner Steve Sack


A cartoon of disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong was among the body of work that won this year’s Pulitzer Prize for Steve Sack of the Minneapolis StarTribune.
Armstrong, stripped of his seven consecutive Tour de France wins and banned from professional cycling for life for doping offenses, was a frequent target for Sack, 59, who has been the StarTribune’s editorial cartoonist since 1981.

Sack would have a receptive audience for any cartoons about cycling. Minneapolis, after all, frequently ranks near the top of Bicycling magazine’s annual list of of the country’s 50 most bicycle-friendly cities.
The city has 92 miles of on-street bikeways and 85 miles of off-street bikeways, according to the official website of Minneapolis. It also has a bike-share program called Nice Ride and, despite challenging winter weather, more than 7,000 regular bike commuters.
