BBC SPORT | Other sport... | Cycling | Armstrong to make shock comeback




BBC SPORT | Other sport... | Cycling | Armstrong to make shock comeback

Love him or loathe him, there's no denying that Lance Armstrong has been a phenomenon in cycling, an inspiration to many and a powerful force for good in his work for cancer charities through the Lance Armstrong Foundation.

Personally, having read his book "It's Not About The Bike" and watched him win 7 Tour de France races in style, I can't help admiring the guy despite his Texan cockiness.

But what will be more important than where he finishes in next year's race will be how he raises the profile of cancer and how to tackle it across the globe. Success in that arena may yet be his greatest epitaph.

Good Lord! I know they have a problem with substance abuse in cycling, but he's drinking WHILE HE'S RIDING!

what a terrible example to The Children. Even to French ones.
