Armstrong Lance Rvv10 BnOutlaw biker Lance Armstrong is planning on racing the Alpine Odyssey 100k mountain race in Crested Butte, Colorado this weekend (September 15, 2012) and the cycling press is wondering is that is something he can or can’t do according to a story on Velonation.com

“USA Cycling does not permit, sanction, license, or participate in the Alpine Odyssey in any manner, and therefore does not govern whether a banned rider can ride. If the Alpine Odyssey were a USA Cycling event, Lance Armstrong could not ride,” a spokesman told VeloNation in response to questions on the matter.

That seems pretty straight forward. What saddens us most is the thought of Armstrong spending the rest of his career traveling from small town to small town like a palsied former heavyweight boxer making a living charging local c-level fighters to kick his ass just so they can say they beat the former champ.
