This should be interesting. Lance Armstrong announced that he is coming out of retirement to race in the Tour de France in 2009. He also stated that he will do some cross races in preperation.
Ryan Trebon has a few thoughts about Lance on the cross racing circut: Asked about Armstrong’s plans to race ’cross this fall, Trebon said, “Sure, why not come out? I’d like him to come out. It would be cool. It would mean more people. I’ve never met him, never raced against him — never even seen him."
Maybe Lance is trying to recreate his unexpected cyclocross detour in the 2003 Tour de France.
