Armstrong aims at Olympics, but has doubts

Yahoo! Sport | Armstrong's Tour defense could doom Olympic effort

Here's another story taken from one of Lance Armstrong's answers at the press conference at the USPS presentation in Solvang, this one focused on his chances at the Athens Olympics:

"My plan is to race in Athens but it's going to be very difficult," Armstrong said here at a pre-season interview session.

"Twenty days after the Tour de France, it's probably the toughest period you have. Get into another work cycle and trying to get that back into the Olympic Games is going to be very difficult.

"Potentially the best riders at the Olympics will be people who either skipped the Tour or people who did only half of the Tour or people who use the Tour strictly as preparation."
