Seven-time Tour de France winner Lance Armstrong had planned to race in this weekend’s Ironman France, but will not be allowed due to an inquiry by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency and the World Triathlon Corporation’s rule stating that athletes under investigation are suspended from Ironman events.
Given Armstrong’s two 70.3. wins (Florida and Hawaii) and his preparation for Ironman France, the American likely has a large base of fitness. Rumors are swirling around what endurance adventure Armstrong will take on next.
