Rumor Mill: Lance Armstrong in Leadville

Do you remember when Lance Armstrong talked about participating in the Leadville 100 then backed out, claiming a scheduling conflict shortly after Floyd Landis said he'd do the same race?

Well, Armstrong has recently been seen in Leadville, mountain biking with his old trainer Chris Carmichael.

Will Armstrong race in the Leadville 100 in 2007? Carmichael reports on his blog: "I don’t know, yet. He liked what he saw and was impressed by how hard some of the climbs are, but his schedule is pretty packed. He originally had to cancel his plans to do Leadville because of a schedule conflict, and it remains to be seen whether he’d be able to squeeze it in somehow. I’ll keep you posted."

Reported also at Go Clipless. Thank you to UltraRob for the heads up. His website looks interesting.
