Lance Armstrong has been invited by rally driver Robbie Gordon to take part in next year's Paris-Dakar desert rally, according to an interview in Velo magazine. "He offered me the chance to sit behind the wheel of the third car in Paris-Dakar. It's ridiculous. I get crazy offers like this regularly."

But Armstrong didn't rule it out altogether. "I work for Discovery and we are busy with a number of ideas to film. This would also be interesting."
