There is no other way to describe it other than as “the Twit heard around the world”… This afternoon, without assistance from publicists or press corp, Lance Armstrong announced that this coming Le Tour de France, which will start this Saturday in Rotterdam, Netherlands, will also be his last. The 7-time winner tweeted that “And yes, this will be final Tour de France. It’s been a great ride. Looking forward to 3 great weeks.”. However, the ambiguity of the statement made this Tour de France seemed to be the very last one instead. Granted in pure Homer Simpson‘s style, Armstrong added later “Doh, sorry, meant “my” final Tour.”
Despite another round of allegation on his supposed performance drug usage, most predict Armstrong to have a strong run for the title this year after finished in second place at Tour of Switzerland a week ago. To inaugurate his attempts at the 8th title, Nike is introducing the Official Le Tour de France Bike Jersey in General Classification Yellow. An all Dri-FIT construction with Considered Design for low environmental impact, the Official Le Tour de France Bike Jersey features sponsorship logos and 3 slip pockets at the rear. An ideal way to celebrate the man and the race the next 3 weeks.
