Seven-time Tour de France winner, Lance Armstrong, announced that he’ll compete in Hawaii’s Ironman after he races in his last Tour de France.
“I will be in Kona (the Ironman start and finish town) 15 months after the final Tour (de France) … if it’s 2010, then it will be Kona 2011,” Armstrong told AAP.
“If it’s 2011, it will be Kona 2012″, he continued.
Armstrong was a tri-athlete in his teens before he pursued his pro cycling career. It will take a significant amount of training to prepared for the 3.8km swim, 180km cycle and 42.2km marathon run, which makes up the Ironman, even for him, the 38-year-old cyclist said.
In 2005, after calling his cycling career quits, Armstrong competed in marathons, finishing with respectable times.
Now, Armstrong looks into his feature once again. His goal for the Ironman, he said, is to complete it. Not necessarily concerned with his Ironman results, Armstrong did mention the possibility of finishing among the top 10.
