AUSTIN, Texas - Lance Armstrong is getting back on his bike, determined to win an eighth Tour de France.
Armstrong’s return from cancer to win the Tour a record seven consecutive times made him a hero to cancer patients worldwide and elevated cycling to an unprecedented level in America.

The 36-year-old Armstrong told Vanity Fair in an exclusive interview posted on its Web site Tuesday that he was inspired to return after finishing second last month in the Leadville 100, a lung-searing 100-mile mountain bike race through the Colorado Rockies.

From:


I heard this rumor floating around the other day but now it's confirmed. The Tour will be relevent once again in the USA and gives the French press yet another to trash Lance.

Only bad thing- I live in Austin and the amount of inspired obese people will be chugging around the streets wearing yellow. Sorta just kidding as I think it's great that it inspires them to get in better shape but they do get in the way.

Good for Lance but let's hope that this isn't a Jordan with the Wizards type of return.

On a side note, I almost hit Lance one time when he was riding his bike.

It really is. It was when they were building his bike shop and I was driving near 4th and Nueces and he rode his bike right in front of me as I was driving, somehow he didn't see me I guess.
