Armstrong press conference countdown
So, speculation continues as to what we'll hear Monday at the pre-Tour de Georgia press conference. Lance Armstrong told Euro journalists in March that he would “have something important to say” here.
What's the consensus on the announcement?
Andrew Hood, the European correspondent for VeloNews, looks at all the possibilities, and comes down on “This is my last Tour, and next year, I'll spend more time racing in the U.S.”
Graham Watson leans toward retirement, but in this week's installment, he mentions that Italian journalists are “praying he is to announce a ride in this year's Giro,” and adds “I feel sure Lance has one more surprise up his sleeves for all of us.”
"new wrist bands"
Looks like someone is having some fun with the conference.

This is his last tour, and he'll concentrate on racing in the US. He'll throw his support behind the fledgling Tour of California, and that will put them over the top and make this race a reality. Distant chance that he tackles the hour record, but there is too much face to lose if he tries and it don't happen.
