More on Armstrong's last Tour rumors

BBC SPORT | Armstrong considers future

This morning's editions of the New York Times and International Herald Tribune carry a story by Samuel Abt quoting an unnamed Tour official that Lance Armstrong won't ride next year's Tour.

Apparently, on Thursday, Armstrong said:

"At some point, I have to start to look at other races in cycling. There's still a lot of things I want to do in the sport," the 32-year-old said.

On Friday, after the story broke, US Postal spokesman Jogi Muller said:

"It's 50-50. There's a chance he won't come back. There is no decision yet."

"He will definitely race next year. He just needs to decide which races."

I was kinda hoping he'd do something like this. It would be neat to see him sweep alot of other stuff, THEN go out and support a teammate in the Tour.
