This makes sense. What would Armstrong gain from losing to a doper?
Biking Bis is reporting that Floyd Landis and Lance Armstrong will both be competing in the Leadville 100 mountain bike race next August:
The Floyd Landis camp issued a press release Tuesday that their guy is going to get on his mountain bike and race in the Leadville Trail 100 Mountain Bike Race, scheduled Aug. 11, 2007, in Leadville, Colorado.
Seven-time Tour de France champion Lance Armstrong had already agreed to ride in Leadville. This sets up a challenge between two Tour de France winners in a slightly different contest.
Where’s you money in this fight? Will Landis dope for this? Will Armstrong’s running help or hurt him? Who can handle the altitude better? Who has better mountain bike skills? Lots of immeasurables in this one.
