Armstrong vs French Hotels

armstrong vs french hotels 275x300   Armstrong vs French HotelsLance Armstrong once more graced the headlines with his latest brush with the media. Some might say it was a “faux pas” yet others might have a different take on what transpired at Houston, Texas yesterday during the National Business Travel Association’s annual convention.

Armstrong was the keynote speaker at the event. During the question and answer portion, the moderator asked him about his travels and Armstrong’s reply was, “Most of my travel — at least in Europe — was in France, staying in these … You’re competing in the biggest race in the world and you’re stuck staying in these horrible hotels.”

armstrong withdraws from leadville trail 100 300x200   Armstrong Withdraws from Leadville Trail 100Lance Armstrong sustained few crashes during the Tour de France and was still feeling the ill-effects of it, according to his manager Mark Higgins. Due to such, it was inevitable that Armstrong will have to sacrifice the Leadville Trail 100 for 2010.

Armstrong made the decision Monday that he was pulling out of the high-altitude mountain bike race. Higgins stated, “He is suffering from a nagging injury to his hip from the Tour de France,” and he added, “His girls will also be in Aspen with him this weekend so he will be staying at home.”

Armstrong had a record time of 6:28:50 when he won last year’s race. Dave Wiens, the six-time winner placed second. The Leadville 100 this year still promises an exciting array of named contenders in the race.

For now, Armstrong has no races to run this year. However, he will be competing in two Livestrong events, one…

On stage 20 of the Tour de France, Lance Armstrong and the rest of Team RadioShack wore black Livestrong jerseys with the number 28, this represents the 28 million people in the world with Cancer.

Officials at the 2010 Tour de France demanded Team Radioshack take off the black Livestrong 28 jerseys and put back on the regular red and grey jerseys, and the cyclists had to add their assigned number. This resulted in a delay in the Tour.

Team RadioShack was upset at the situation, including director Johan Bruyneel, who expressed his anger on Twitter writing: Ok people! Now it’s official!” he tweeted. “To be a race commisar (sic), you don’t need brains but only know the rules! Their motto: “c’est le reglement!”

As you can expect, the UCI is unhappy on Bruyneel’s statement. Acting in somewhat good faith, the UCI said any fines from the incident will be…
