WOOT! Something to take me out of my after-Olympics depression. Lance Armstrong is going for another Tour de France, after coming in second in a 100 mile race in Colorado. I guess he figures he still has the chops. He stated that he intends to bring more attention to the fight against cancer through racing again...but I saw his steely eyes harden in a video when he confirmed he will race the Tour again. I think the man just likes to compete! That's what it takes at his level, for sure. A Yahoo article says he was inspired (as I was) by 41 y.o. Olympic medalist swimmer Dana Torres and 33 y.o. Olympic medalist gymnast Oksana Chusovitina.
He plans to post all his drug screens online for all to see.
