Lance Armstrong Returns to Racing this Week
As late as yesterday, Armstrong didn't think he'd get to race in the Tour of the Gila, but it had nothing to do with his injury: arcane cycling rules prevented top-level international players like Lance from competing in local events like the 5-day race based in Silver City, New Mexico.
But after some wrangling with international cycling officials, those rules were suspended, and Armstrong will compete on a 3-man team, with Levi Leipheimer and Chris Horner. The three have had to scramble after making other plans. They'll be racing to N.M. tonight to line up for tomorrow's start.
