More on Armstrong's last Tour rumors
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.
