Lance to return

Road Cycling It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle. -- Ernest Hemingway

Lance to return

Report: Lance to return for '09 Tour de France

Sep 8 03:46 PM US/Eastern
By The Associated Press 26 Comments


Lance Armstrong will end his retirement and hopes to compete in the 2009 Tour de France, according to a cycling journal report.
The 36-year-old seven-time Tour de France champion will compete in five road races with the Astana team in 2009, the cycling journal VeloNews reported on its Web site Monday, citing anonymous sources.

Armstrong's manager Mark Higgins did not immediately respond to a voice mail left by The Associated Press.

The move would reunite Armstrong with Johan Bruyneel, now the team director for Astana.

VeloNews reported Armstrong also will compete in the Amgen Tour of California, Paris-Nice, the Tour de Georgia and the Dauphine-Libere.

The Astana team, however, was not allowed to compete in this year's Tour after Alexandre Vinokourov was kicked out of the 2007 Tour for testing positive and the team quit the race.

VeloNews, which said Vanity Fair will publish an extensive article detailing Armstrong's comeback, said the cyclist will race for no salary or bonuses and post his internally tested blood work online.

Lance crackers? I didn't think they went out of business. But, cool. I like their white cheddar cheese popcorn.

No, he is NOT. A rumor to promote an upcoming "Vanity Fair" profile of Armstrong. As discussed in the OTHER 107 threads on this topic.
