It's official: Armstrong out at Milan-San Remo
Lance Armstrong will NOT start tomorrow's Milan-San Remo. Armstrong had originally intended to ride in support of George Hincapie and Max Van Heeswijk in the initial spring classic and initial World Cup race Saturday in Italy.
Lance Armstrong withdrew from the Milan-San Remo cycling race Friday with a mild case of bronchitis.
Armstrong, going for his record sixth Tour de France win later this summer, told the organizers of the opening World Cup event that he could not race.
