Citing unnamed sources, Velonews.com is reporting that Lance Armstrong will ride for Astana in the 2009 cycling season.
I'll let you click on the story for details, mostly because I don't have time to post them all, but I have to ask why? I thought he was enjoying being retired, owning a bike shop, hanging with Matthew McConaughey and being photographed in the company of Hollywood starlets.
Or maybe, like Freddy Mercury, he just wants to ride his "bicylce, bicycle, BICYCLE! race!"
Twelve years ago Lance tried retirement, and it didn't really suit him then. I guess it doesn't really suit him now either. I wouldn't be surprise if his second-place finish in Leadville might have given fuel to his desire to continue competing.
