Sunday Times (Johannesburg) | Armstrong to miss Tour of Qatar

Lance Armstrong announced that he'll skip the Tour of Qatar at the end of January.

The race is sponsored by the Amaury Sport Organization, the parent company of the Tour de France.

Armstrong cited a family conflict:

"...[T]he January 31-February 4 race clashes with a week when he is looking after his children from his marriage to now-separated wife Kristin."
